I just love these passages below in this Psalm. The Lord reminds us daily that our help comes from Him. We look to the Creator of the hills for help, not to the hills themselves. We need to thank Him today that He has allowed adversities in our lives that we may know that He alone is our Helper, our Deliver, our God. We need His help in everything. Remembering that apart from Christ, I can do nothing. So today, as you rise to prepare for whatever your day will bring meditate on the Words of the Lord in this Psalm.
“I will lift up my eyes to the hills– From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. He will not allow you stumble, the one who watches over you will not slumber.” Psalm 121:1-3
In Psalm 121, verse 3, God also reminds us that as we rested in the night, He worked. He did not sleep all night! He labored on our behalf through the night, and not just last night…every night! We do not have to run to Him for help this morning in order that He work on our behalf. He labors on our behalf because He loves us, because that is His character, because He says that He “works for those who wait for Him (Isaiah. 64:4).”
God loves to show His tireless power and wisdom and goodness by working for people who trust Him. Jesus Himself is the clearest revelation of this truth: ‘The Son of man also came not to be served but to serve (Mark 10:45).”
The Lord is so faithful. He is amazing! It is mighty to meditate on the fact that the Living God, the Creator of the universe, labors continually on my behalf, on your behalf. What an encouragement to rest in Him, to serve Him today and every day, knowing that it is He who is at work in us and not us at work in Him! He is our strength and He is our portion.
In whatever you have planned in your day, He is there. He is paving the way. He is already helping you today. May you enjoy the blessing of knowing that God is working for YOU today and always!
Jesus is a safe harbor
I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him.
If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32.
He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips.
I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS!
I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE!
