“I look up to the mountains - does my help come from there?” Ps 121:1
I’m sure that we’ve all, at some point, been part of an attempt to create a human pyramid! With strong men on the bottom row and a small person on the top, we all remember the pain of knees digging into our backs, followed by the wobbling and shaking as the structure begins to take the pressure of all the bodies. Whether with just three people or twenty, when any of the bottom row (foundations) are removed, everything collapses.
We all have a choice as to what we build our lives upon and every builder needs to know which materials are strong, reliable and unshakeable and which materials are flimsy and quick to collapse under pressure. God is good to us and sets us up to build lives which won’t crumble under the pressures and stresses of the world.
Psalm 121 begins with asking us where we seek our help from. Where do we look to in times of trouble? Many places offer us solutions in life but unfortunately, many of them are worldly and can be distracting. God knows us. He’s created us as mind, body and spirit beings. Thankfully, He has put things in place for us to look to and help us connect with Him on a daily basis.
• Of the three God-given areas above, which are you using to look to and relate to Jesus on a daily basis? Choose one which you would like to dig deeper into and commit to a small practical goal for today (e.g. if the Holy Spirit, commit to spending time asking for His presence today to help with a certain situation or person).
• Ask God to speak to you about how you can love a particular friend or family in your congregation and how you can be an encouragement to them today as we journey together!
