Psalms 121: Providence

Providence takes its cue from men. - Brave New World, Aldous Huxley.

God is our King, He is our provider. He is the one who opens the gate of heaven, he is the one who determines the rain and the sun.

However, even though God is known as Jehovah Jireh, not many does he provide for. 

Common is the saying "You have not for you ask not", and how true is that statement! God is omniscient and omnipotent, but are we humble enough to ask God for help? Are we willing to seek help from a being and thus admitting that we are not as good and as strong as we think we are in our minds.

Providence comes from God, for God is more than able to provide for all our needs and for all that we want. God has dominion over the whole earth. Yet, Christians around the world are suffering because of a misconception: "God has a better plan, I will wait silently that God will one day do a miracle.". However, we do not know that God's power and sovereignty is unlocked through prayer, which requires us to OPEN our mouths and speak, connecting with God and allowing us to have a deeper relationship with him. 

Providence takes its cue from men. As we ask God for help, we will see verses come true. We will begin to understand the laws of heaven and the mercies of God. We will then be able to know that God indeed cares for us and have not left us on this earth to go through a course of life.  

Like the Psalm:
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills:
from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh even from the Lord:
who hath made heavn and earth.
And he that keepeth thee will not sleep.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord himself is thy keeper:
he is thy defence upon thy right hand;
So that the sun shall not burn thee by day:
neither the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil:
yea, it is even he that shall keep thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out, and thy coming in:
from this time forth and for evermore.
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills:
from whence cometh my help.
