Message of the Day: A Declaration of Faith in the Lord

I will lift up my eyes to the hills – from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1-2, NKJV)

This psalm is included in the group of fifteen psalms (Psalm 120-134) called ‘A Song of Ascents’ (ASV, NIV). These psalms were apparently sung by worshippers from the country areas as they made the journey up to Jerusalem for the various annual festivals.

Whether or not the psalms written for this purpose, they have been arranged in a sequence that reflects the feelings of the traveller. They provide expressions of worship for the traveller as he set out from distant regions, travel through the country, come to Jerusalem, and finally join in the temple ceremonies.

Song of Ascents opens with a cry from one who lives in a distant region and is bitterly persecuted by his neighbors. As the traveller journeys through the hill country, he knows that God who made the hills cares for him.

As we journey through this life, we are assured of God’s tender loving care. Today, may we find courage to declare this faith and assurance in the Lord.
