Category Archives: I LIFT UP MY EYES

It is the Response not just Reading of the Word that is important. Here is The Word of the Lord to me by His Holy Spirit or from Bible Commentaries that I read on meaning and context, which I have lifted from to share, and then my simple response and application in faith today. Join me. Valid responses make me lift my eyes to the Lord in faith, even when I cannot see the road ahead. Valid responses include meditating and hiding God’s Word in my heart and practicing, living out His Word in love to God and man.
I remember all the time that He is above the hills.

1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
3He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
Psalm 121:1-4
