Psalm 121 speaks of nature, time, eternity, & the God who is there through it all. Eugene Peterson says it is, "A quiet voice gently & kindly telling us that we are, perhaps, wrong in the way we are going about the Christian life, & then, very simply showing us the right way."
The 2nd Psalm of our "Songs of Ascent" asks us the question, "Where do we turn when we are in need of help?" We are reminded that God is our rescuer...our Guide...our Protector...our Provider.

In Psalm 120, we are invited by God to turn away from the seemingly aimless wandering through this life and turn toward God. He is the One who rescues us from our wandering and gives us direction and purpose in this life. Apart from our Loving Creator, we will continue to our futile search for fulfillment that can only be found in Him.

In this life, there ARE easy ANSWERS...however, a person can know the ANSWER without knowing the SOLUTION. SOLUTIONS help us find our way to the ANSWER to the next problem. SOLUTIONS are the processes used to find the ANSWER.
Psalms 120-134 are the songs the Israelites sang as they made their pilgrimage to Jerusalem for the special festivals 3 times per year. They provide us with a great perspective on the processes (solutions) of our growth & faith, what it takes to continue to grow, and what we may experience as we draw closer to Christ, merging into His image, and living out His purpose in us and through us.
Join us & listen in on our new message series, A Long Obedience...The Songs of Ascent (Psalms 120-134).
