Psalm 121:1-2: I will lift up my eyes to the hills

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.

Psalm 121:1-2 NKJV

Our help comes from the Lord.  David understood this through everything he faced in his life.  David spent much of his life running from Saul before he ever became king.  It was through the challenges and struggles David faced that David became the man God called him to be and also deepened David’s faith and trust in the Lord.

Often times when we are going through trials, the trials themselves can seem overwhelming.  But this is why our eyes and our hearts must be fixed upon the Lord.  When our eyes are fixed upon the Lord we will walk in His perfect peace.  We will place everything in the right perspective.  We will see our challenges for what they are, simply stepping stones of growth.  Every trial is simply an opportunity to grow deeper in our relationship with Jesus Christ.  May the joy of the Lord be our strength.
