“I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come?  My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.”  (Psalm 121:1-2)

Whom do you look up to?  What is your source for what you need?  The One who created all things is the only One who can provide all that is needed.  Look to the Lord and His provision and be guided by the truth of all that He says.  Know that the giver of life is the One who knows all that is needed.  Come to the help of your neighbor and seek the LORD while He may be found.

Lord, I look around me and seek all kinds of things.  Grant that my heart would not settle for anything less than the better portion which is found in You alone.  Lift up the eyes of my heart to look upon You, the source of all life, and be guided by what You know I need.  Let my inward gaze be firm upon You that I may now and always abide in the truth of Your presence and purpose.

Come, Holy Spirit, and minister to my heart.  You know that my mind knows these things, but often my heart is far away.  Guide me away from the ways of this world to look up and see that the help You give is always present.  Lift me up this day that I would seek the source of life and know Your presence.  What more can I ask?  You, who sees my heart, knows all that I need.  Amen.
