Looking Beyond the Mountains: Psalm 121

Psalms 121:1  A song of ascents. I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from?

So, the journey begins – out of darkness into God’s marvellous light.  Perhaps we see a small family group journeying “Home” and another joins them coming up from a different area.  Their focus is PEACE.  This brings the people  into blessing, grace covering them.  They experience God’s Peace, Presence and Protection.  No longer are the hills or mountains a threat (a possible hiding place for thieves and robbers).  Now the pilgrims take confidence, living under the shadow of the Almighty.  He will watch over their coming out and their going in.  We can take courage from this.  A time will come for us to step out of lockdown and press on towards our home in heaven together!  It will be different, new dangers (maybe) but we will continue to look to the Lord our helper and Saviour.
