1 I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? 
2 My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. 
3 He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.  - Psalm 121:1-3

Whatever you may be facing today, no matter how impossible the situation in front of you may seem, know that it’s not impossible for God. The same God who made the heavens and the earth is powerful enough to resolve whatever you are going through. It may be incredibly frustrating to you, it may be scary or heart-breaking, and you may think there is no solution, but it’s not impossible to God. He’s already got a plan for your good that includes whatever you’re facing. All we need to do is lift our eyes to the One who made the heavens and the earth. 

When we seek Him, He promises to protect us from harm. He promises to keep our foot from slipping, to walk beside us through our struggles, and to keep us under His protective shade. Nothing can stand against us if we stand with God. All we need to do is lift our eyes to the One who mass the heavens and the earth. 

Knowing all that He offers, we still scramble to find solutions to our problems. We work harder, run faster, and exhaust all our resources trying to find a solution. Our anxieties rise when nothing is working, and our fears can grow to overwhelm us. Personally, I’ve been caught in this trap for the past few months, trying desperately to find a solution for my son’s impossible diagnosis. 

But God. He offers us a solution - a peace can conquer all our anxious thoughts. Lift your eyes to the Maker of heaven and earth. He promises us in this psalm to be everything we need, but we have to make the choice to lift our eyes and recognize who He is.

The problem is many of us have ideas for how our problems should be resolved, so we lift our eyes to the hills, but we also lift our solutions and our desires. God, take this anxiety away, bring them home, heal her, employ him. While it’s not wrong to bring our requests before the Lord, we most often fail to recognize He is the Maker of heaven and earth with our requests. We hold our requests up as we lift our eyes. When we do that, we can’t truly see past our problems to recognize He is the Creator of all things. 

Take a minute today to just do that - recognize He is the Maker of heaven and earth. He is the One who designed all of this, and He did it with a perfect plan in place. He created you and He allowed the problem you are currently facing to enter your life for a very specific purpose. Leave your problem on the ground, and just lift your eyes to praise the One who is sovereign over all.  Don’t lift your problem, and don’t lift your solution, just pause to praise Him. Trust that His solution to the problem is enough, and leave it at that. He’s got this. 

Press on ~ you are loved 💗
