I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2 ESV
In the Do It Yourself culture, the self-help mind-set rules and it is hard to understand a verse like the one above. You see, we cannot fix ourselves. Try as we might, there is only one who can truly help us. Yes, I can make decisions to protect my family or choose a job, but I cannot alter my life span. I can buy expensive water filters to have my water intake cleaner than tap water… I can take a daily vitamin to have more energy… But in the end it is God, the maker of Heaven and Earth who truly helps me. When I am down He is there. When I am weak He is strong. When I am lost He is always near to guide me. Faith is, knowing God is who He says He is and all that He has promised He will do. God provides my every need. God allows me to have the job that I have in order to buy the things my family needs. EVERYTHING comes from HIM.
