Know the Lord
“My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:2)
It is important to know the Bible well. Better even is to know the Lord God well. Because in different situations we are encouraged by different facets of His character and actions. Sometimes we need a shepherd to guide us. Sometimes we long for a light on our path that shows us the way. And sometimes we need a mighty God who can conquer mountains for us.
The writer of Psalm 121 refers back to creation. That is relevant in his situation. Knowing that the Lord made heaven and earth can provide comfort in his circumstances. For if God created the whole earth and holds it in His hand, He can also subdue the mountains. He is far more powerful than all the powers and natural phenomena on Earth. For Him, no problem is too great. When He is with us, nothing can separate us from His love. That is why the poet says it aloud, “My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.”
