Read Psalm 19:1-9

The psalmist wrote, “I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”—Psalm 121:1-2 (NIV)

One evening while on holiday, we went to an outdoor entertainment event, which culminated with our standing in darkness under a magnificent canopy of trees. We were told to close our eyes just for a moment and then to look up. When we opened our eyes, we found that hundreds of lights had been strung among the branches—quite an enchanting sight!

As we drove back to our accommodations through an area with no lights, we looked up to see that the whole sky was covered with brilliant stars—a sight which far exceeded the artificial light display we had seen earlier.

At all times, but especially when we are in need of comfort and assurance, it is important to lift our eyes and look beyond the cares and concerns of our earthly life that can cloud our vision. As we do, we realize that we are in the hands of the great God of the universe. God is no distant figure, as Jesus revealed, but is here with us, sharing our lives and walking with us each day.

Prayer—Gracious God, in every situation of our lives help us to be aware of your nearness and your love reaching out to us. Amen.

Thought for the Day—God’s love shines through our cares and concerns.

William David Willis (New South Wales, Australia)
