I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm 121:1-2 NIV

Help

If you are a hard-working Canadian that pays taxes every year, you should give yourself a big pat on the back for the difference you are helping to make in the world. Without even realizing it, each and every tax-paying Canadian has been contributing a massive amount of funding to the Global Fund, saving more than 20 million lives around the world since its inception in 2002. The Global Fund is designed to significantly reduce the threat posed by AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria and other such epidemics.

It has always been the case that followers of Jesus have tried to describe God using terms that we can understand, always recognizing that He is indescribable. There is nothing in our experience that would come anywhere close to explaining God. King David, in speaking about the help that only God offers, uses the mightiest of God’s creation in Psalm 121:1-2: “I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” David’s point is this – if the Creator is powerful enough to create a mountain, there is nothing so big in our lives that God cannot overcome. It doesn’t matter what is happening in your life today – God is more powerful. Whatever is causing you to fear, God is able to overcome. Look to the mountains and remember that God spoke these into being. He will speak into your life with the same authority and power, moving mountains in your life and making your way certain. Your help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

These have been words from the heart.
