I am encouraged by the attitude of the Psalmist who wrote this Psalm. Attitude is something that we do not speak about often enough, but it is something that determines how we see life. The Bible is very clear that we are motivated by what we see. A good attitude is not something that just happens but it is the outworking of our relationship with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. It is impossible to be dominated by negative thoughts when we are worshipping the Lord. Worship takes you to a new level of appreciation for the greatness of God. Being a worshipper is a choice that we need to make regularly. If we are not deliberate about this we begin to coast along and this is what the god of this world wants us to do, back off and become distracted by the normal pressures of life and the state of the ungodly world. The title of this Psalm is “God the help of those who seek Him”. The Psalmist challenges us with this title because it is very dangerous to believe that God will protect us if we do not put Him first and live a life that pleases us and not God. I am so glad that I have learned to put God first so I can look back over my life and be thankful especially these last 9 years living without the love of my life. The fact is we can find God in every season of Life when we make Him number one. Verse 1&2 says: “I will lift up my eyes to the hills – from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord who made the heaven and the earth “. The Psalmist is very clear about his attitude to his God, he commences with this life-changing statement ‘I will ’, the significance of this statement cannot be overstated, this declaration and belief should be the first thing we confess each day. We cannot start each day being apathetic to our situation and just hope everything will work out – if we do it is a formula for disaster a life without God. And that is something that I do not want to even desire to experience. It is so good to have that attitude not to be influenced by other people, I have decided to be a man of God as long as I live. The Psalmist declared that he would narrow his focus to see God’s creation. Today we are bombarded with disasters from all over the world and continually told things are getting worse. If we allow this to be our focus then our relationship with the Lord suffers and becomes unimportant to us. We need to continually remind ourselves that it takes greater faith to believe what we see coming out of nothing than to believe in God’s creation. It is a good habit to have that we believe God created everything. In Verse 2 the Psalmist categorically states that his help comes from the Lord! This is a great place to be in, our trust is in the Lord our Saviour Jesus Christ. This comes about when we spend quality time reading and meditating on His word and talking with Him every day. Having my confidence in my God is so rewarding every day and gets sweeter with Him, Life is so much better when we have a song in our hearts to the Lord continually.  In this season of our lives may our declaration be ‘I Wil’ and enjoy the greatness that He has for us who trust in Him.
