Psalm 121 “Where does my help come from?”

We envisage pilrgrms making their way to Jerusalem in order to attend one of festivals adn to go to teh temple to worship God. As they make their way on the journey they look for help. None is to be found in the hills. In fact, God alone can help. The pilgrims face Potential Problems, but with God by their side, they have Promised Protection.
For the Christian we face the jounrey through this life as we head toward the New Jerusalem where we will go to worship God eternally. On te way, we too face Potential Problems but likewise have Promised Protection.
