What in God’s creation takes your breath away? Mountains rising high? The vast expanse of the ocean? The intricate knitting together of a newborn baby? The colors of a sunset radiating through the clouds?
Everywhere around us, God is giving us a glimpse of His power, goodness and might.
What in your life causes you to worry? Your job? Kids? Future? Health? Finances? For me, the list includes all of those and a few more. When the stresses of life start to overwhelm me, I think about these words from Psalm 121:
“I lift my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.”
The God who raised those mountains from the ground? He’s planned my future.
The Lord who holds the ocean depths in the palm of His hand? He loves my children.
My Father who knit me together in my mother’s womb? Every cell in my body answers to Him.
When you cry out to the Lord for help, you are depending on the One created the universe and upholds it by His will. Let the wonders of His creation remind you of His power and might at work in your life and in your circumstances.
No matter what you face this week, your help comes from the Maker of heaven and earth.
