It’s easy for me to say I believe in and trust God when it's smooth sailing and everything is hunky-dory. But when life hits the proverbial fan and times of testing come, how do I respond? I wish I could say when the rains come and the waters rise that I’m always a pillar of faith, but I’m not. I wiggle, squirm, flounder, and flail like an aquaphobe tossed into the deep end.

Sadly, often times my default response during divine testing is to merely improve my circumstances through my own ridiculously inadequate power rather than waiting on and trusting in The LORD. The enemy uses those moments to guilt and shame us. Meanwhile, our Heavenly Father uses them to draw us closer to Him in absolute desperate dependency.

I don’t know where you are today or what you’re wrestling with, but the revelation of Psalm 121 has given me peace in a time of great uncertainty. Even though I might not know you, I’m lifting you up in prayer and thanking our Creator that His gift of grace and peace is available to everyone - including you - no matter what lies the enemy has, is, or will whisper in your ear.

A song of ascents.

1I lift my eyes up to the hills.

From where does my help come?

2My help comes from the LORD,

the Maker of heaven and earth.

3He will not allow your foot to slip;

your Protector will not slumber.

4Behold, the Protector of Israel

will neither slumber nor sleep.

5The LORD is your keeper;

the LORD is the shade on your right hand.

6The sun will not strike you by day,

nor the moon by night.

7The LORD will guard you from all evil;

He will preserve your soul.

8The LORD will watch over your coming and going,

both now and forevermore.

I hope you find great joy in knowing we can be transported instantly to Jerusalem (place of peace) in lifting our eyes up to the LORD and trusting the Maker of heaven and earth as our EXCLUSIVE source of help. The promise of Scripture, made by the Almighty Promise Keeper, is that in lifting our eyes up to Him, He WILL guard you from all evil. He WILL preserve your soul. He WILL watch over all your comings and goings, both now and forevermore.

The enemy wants you to look down in shame and defeat, but King Jesus says, "Eyes up!"

Grace and Peace,
