I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
Psalm 121:1-2 (NIV)
As a small boy I thought my father knew everything. He could repair our family car, finish off the basement including the electrical wiring. His sense of direction was phenomenal. He knew how to hunt and trap for food, and how to ice fish. I thought there was nothing useful he did not know.
As an adult I came to realize my beloved father had limits to his knowledge and wisdom for living. It did not change my love and respect for him in the least.
My Father in heaven is different from my earthly father. The Lord has infinite wisdom, power, love, holiness, compassion, grace, and on the list goes. There is nothing my heavenly Father cannot do.
