A Song of Ascents.
1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills–from whence comes my help?
2 My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade at your right hand.
6 The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul.
8 The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore.
Once you’ve realized that there is a problem, and you can’t solve it on your own because you are the problem, the next step is asking for help. The most important part of asking for help is that you ask from someone who can actually give it. If you need a ride to the store, you don’t ask for help from a toddler that doesn’t even have a decent bicycle for you to borrow. When you have a problem, and the arena where help is needed is your entire life because you are the problem, there is only one place you can go for help. “My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.” When God is your helper he doesn’t just have your back, He’s got your back, your front, your left, your right, your up, and your down. And since He never sleeps, His help is good 24/7/365 (366 in a leap year) This is why David said in Psalm 18, “I will call on the LORD who is worthy to be praised, and that is how I will be saved from my enemies.”
