November 19 – Hills of the Lord
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh form the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
Yes! always raise your eyes, from earth’s sordid and mean and false, to the Hills of the Lord. From poverty, lift your eyes to the Help of the Lord.
In moments of weakness, lift your eyes to the Hills of the Lord.
Train your sight by constantly getting this long view. Train it to see more and more, further and further, until distant peaks seem familiar.
The Hills of the Lord. The Hills whence comes your help. A parched earth looks to the Hills for its rivers, its streams, its life. So look you to the Hills. From those Hills comes Help. Help from the Lord – who made Heaven and earth.
So, for all your spiritual needs, look to the Lord, who made Heaven, and for all your temporal needs look to Me, owner of all this, the Lord who made the earth.
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord,
and he shall lift you up. James 4:10
