Many churches throughout the world use a Bible reading schedule called a "lectionary." It's just a fancy word meaning "selected readings." Posts like this reflect on the readings for an upcoming Sunday or other Church holiday, as found in the three-year lectionary.
Our reading from Psalm 121 cries out to God for help At the outset, the Psalmist pictures a look at the mountains. This is in itself a terrifying picture to any human writer. All manner of robbers, gangsters, and terrorists are found in the mountains. They may not always be visible, but the traveler is in constant danger. Where will help be found?
Our help is not in our own goodness, our own defenses, our weaponry, our political plans, or any other earthly thing. There will always be earthly assailants who can overcome us. On the contrary, our help is in God, who made all things. He is the one who can govern all his creation. He is the one who is always attentive. He is the one who is dependable.
