God:merciful, loving, kind, wonderful
Psalm 121(KJV) “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore”.
I remember a time in my life when I really was very lost in my actions and thinking and some of the major choices I was making in my life and I honestly believe some of the actions from that part of my life have superimposed on who I am today and the choices I am making. But I know a friend who has helped tremendously; I looked to the hills and found Him.
This is a sad occurrence for many people; the things from our past trying to sneak back into our lives to bite us and give us a hard time. I made up in my mind recently: I am not going to be a hostage to my past. As a matter of fact as much as I can or as much as it is relevant to anyone who believes that it is impossible to accept a person for what they see and need to be a personal private investigator for justification, I trump them by being transparent. Not to brag, but because I have found a friend who is a true BFF and it really doesn’t matter to Him.
Yeah, the scripture helped me some, when it stated in my deepest darkest hour, “I lift my eyes up to the hill, from whence cometh my help, my help cometh from God”. Yes you got it, that’s my BFF. I disclosed the things I couldn’t readily share with others, I was wary of opening myself to judgment, so I was this closed off box thinking, what will that one say, how will they perceive me.
Thank God for being my BFF; I really care about you who are in my life, but I don’t need another argument; it’s fine and I accept the death of Christ as so much more than a front page story in some ancient tome. Yea, I read your murder reporting, the angst of crucifixion, but I receive salvation for who I was and prominence into a greater glory; you see, His blood is able to do that for me.
So when I tell you to look to the hills, it’s not for a show, it’s not for justification, it’s not fake; but my God, it is so that you also get to receive the greatest and most explosive communication you will ever get in your life; Moses did with the burning bush.
Join me, look to the hills; you surely will find help in time of need.
Trivia: Although he had a great and major destiny to fulfill, the Lord would have killed him because he didn’t follow a covenant agreement, who is this?
