My help comes not from the mountains but from my God who made the heavens and the earth. Yes, not from the strength, stability, power of the mountains, but from the Creator of the mountains. We are moving upward and onward to worship our God. He is the source of perfect knowledge to whom we offer our sacrifices.
As the Psalm continues, moving from general statements to more personal ones, the Psalmist affirms that their God is with them through the various experiences of life, positive and negative. Their God does not sleep, never is off duty, is always loving and watching and caring for His children. Finally, the last statement climaxes the Psalm with the following words: I will be with you from here and throughout eternity.
What assurance is ours on our Pilgrim Journey!
