The BIBLE states, “I WILL LIFT UP MINE EYES UNTO THE HILLS FROM WHENCE COMETH MY HELP…MY HELP COMETH FROM THE LORD, CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH.” (Psalm 121:1-2) So, LIFT UP YOUR EYES!
BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:
Unless you have the strength of Samson, you cannot carry a refrigerator into the house or apartment without a dolly and the help of a strong man. Don’t ask somebody with back problems or weak knees to help you wheel in a refrigerator as you may find yourself sliding down the steps and run over by the refrigerator. Don’t ask a scary cat to help you hunt mountain lions or tigers, because he just may freeze up, be unable to pull the trigger, and speed off in a truck leaving you behind. WHAT-YA-GONNA-DO?
You are not alone and the only one facing crisis and decisions in this sinful World. We all have close encounters and face-to-face confrontations with that old devil. The Psalmist writes, “I WILL LIFT UP MINE EYES UNTO THE HILLS” because that is the direction we all should be facing! Ask me why? “…OUR HELP COMETH FROM THE LORD…” GOD IS THE POWER SOURCE FOR OUR LIVES AND DELIVERANCE (not the president, not the prime minister, not the king or queen, not congress, not the governor, not the police department, and not the energy or utility company). There is no sense looking down on the ground because the LORD GOD is up in Heaven! Ain’t nothing on the ground but the dirt.
The LORD is a constant help. JESUS may not come on that particular day or night, but HE IS ALWAYS ON TIME! Late in the mid-night hour and just before the break of day, the LORD COMES THROUGH. Sometimes you feel alone, depressed (wondering if anybody really cares for you), speechless, and unable to share the agony in your heart. HONEY, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
The Psalmist writes, “HE WILL NOT SUFFER THY FOOT TO BE MOVED; HE THAT KEEPETH THEE WILL NOT SLUMBER.” (Psalm 121:3) As you sleep, the LORD is AWAKE 24/7 (throughout all eternity) and nothing escapes HIS eyes. Don’t look to YO Mama, YO Daddy, YO homeboy or girl, or anybody else to rescue you because they do not have the power or the ability to deliver themselves. Keep your eyes focused on the mark (the High calling) and “LIFT UP YOUR EYES” unto GOD!
Have a Blessed Day!
