Lift Up Your Eyes

“I lift up my eyes to the hills— from where will my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth” (Psalm 112:1-2).

This beautiful Psalm, known as the "A Song of Ascents," was traditionally sung by the pilgrims ascending to the holy city of Jerusalem, a path riddled with potential dangers—from the harsh desert conditions to the threat of wild animals and bandits lurking in the shadows. It was a journey that tested the faith and patience of every traveler.

In our lives, just like in the journey of the ancient pilgrims, we often face the unexpected and the uncertain. We look around and see challenges and obstacles that seem insurmountable, times when we feel pressed on every side, facing dangers and fears that test our faith and resolve. In these moments, it's crucial to remember that our help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

When we lift our eyes above our problems, above the fears and the challenges, we are reminded of the immense power of our God. It’s not just about the physical act of looking up, but it’s about shifting our perspective, directing our gaze away from our challenges and towards the divine assistance that God offers.

You see, our God is not just any helper; He is the Creator of everything. There is nothing too big or too overwhelming for Him. When we truly grasp this, our worries start to shrink in the light of His power and majesty. Our faith tells us that the same God who created the mountains, who placed the stars in the sky, is the one who comes to our aid.

So today, I encourage you to lift your eyes to the mountains—not in fear but in faith. Trust in the One who created everything from nothing. Believe in His almighty power to save and sustain you. He has promised never to leave us nor forsake us, and His word is unbreakable. And when the winds of worry and the waves of hardship try to bring us down, let’s stand firm in our faith, confident that the God who holds the universe is holding us, too.
