Help

“Where does my help come from?”

Psalm 121:1

Focus

To look to God, our helper in times of need, the creator of the world, to reflect on the awesome power of God, who can move mountains yet is also our refuge and comforter.

Bible Reading – Psalm 121 (NIV)

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.

He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.

Pray

Take some time to look at the image below. Reflect on those things in your life that may feel utterly insurmountable, like a huge mountain. Remember that when we put our faith and trust in God, He can move mountains – nothing is impossible for God. Lay these before God in prayer, as you read the verses from Psalm 121, giving thanks to Him, your comfort and the source of help in times of need. If there are times you have neglected to lift your eyes to the Lord and you need to look to Him again in awe and worship, do this as you look at the mountain.
