The Daily Grace - Our Help Comes from the Lord

The New Testament tells us that Christ is not only the Redeemer, but He is also the Creator of the universe. Read the whole chapter of Psalm 121. There, the psalmist challenges us to lift our eyes to the hills to see God, for our "help comes from the Lord, who made Heaven and Earth" (vv. 1-2). He alone is sufficient to be our strength and to guide our steps as we make our way through a dangerous and troubled world.

We lift our eyes to the One who keeps us, guards us and overshadows us in the face of all types of danger. He preserves us from evil and keeps us safely in His care for all eternity. In faith, we lift our eyes to the One who is our Redeemer and Creator. He is our help and our hope and our eternal home.

Christ was lifted up that He might lift us up. He is our God, our help in ages past. He is our hope for the years to come. He is our shelter from the stormy blast. And, He is our eternal home.
