Our scripture this morning is Psalms 121:1-3. 

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; From where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber.

In this passage the psalmist expresses a confident faith, recognizing the source of all our help is in the Lord. The mountains may be a mighty thing, but creation is a testament to God’s power and love, and the Creator is over all things. We don’t worship anything that was created; only God is worthy of our praise.

God has promised to be with us and protect us. In Joshua 1:9 we read “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” There is nowhere in creation that God’s love and care won’t find us.

Jesus teaches us the way to this confident faith. He says “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33). When we seek God, He is there for us. We must remember that nothing can separate us from His love!

Gracious God, when we are fearful we often try to protect ourselves. Help us to see that You are our sure defense and the source of all good. Amen.
