A Psalm for Slippery Slopes

March 8, 2020


The mountains in Psalm 121 are not God, but seeing the mountains helps the psalmist think about God who is the keeper Israel, the protector of the people, the One who never slumbers or goes off duty. When we find ourselves on slippery slopes, we need not fear, but instead, look for God’s leading. Ask God’s help to see whether there really is an incline, and whether it truly leads down or points upward to God.
