from where does your help come?

I was reading Ps 121 today - doing a bit of a study on it actually.

"I lift up my eyes to the hills,
where does my help come from?

My help comes from Yahweh
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not slumber
He who watches... will neither slumber nor sleep"

He does not slumber ~ He does not sleep ~ He watches over you 24/7 - and will protect you from all harm...

Reflecting on the past few weeks, I realized that.... I've been alot like Peter. He got out of the boat just fine. At that point, his focus was on Jesus. But then the waves started to surround him - high waves - waves that were threatening to drown him - and guess what? He looked down. That was his mistake. He lost his focus.

"I lift up my eyes. . . from where does my help come?"

I've lost focus the last few weeks - looking at the waves that were threatening to wash over me instead of lifting up my eyes....

"My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth"
