PSALM 121
1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

***PRAYER

INTRO. HELICOPTER SHOT DOWN…ENEMY CLOSING IN… WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

3. SUICIDE
…BUT THEN OUT OF NOWHERE YOU LOOK UP AND HELICOPTER SWOOPS DOWN AND A ROPE IS DROPPED…YOU GRAB HOLD AND ARE LIFTED UP TO SAFETY.


YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR HOPES…DREAMS…GOALS HAVE BEEN SHOT DOWN…YOU’RE SURROUNDED…THE ENEMY IS CLOSING IN…WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?
1. SURRENDER
2. SWITCH SIDES
3. SUICIDE

I’VE GOT GOOD NEWS FOR YOU TODAY…LOOK UP… FOR HELP IS ON THE WAY!!!
YOU CAN TELL A LOT ABOUT A PERSON BY WHERE HE LOOKS FOR HELP IN TIMES OF TROUBLE:

1. WHEN MOSES WAS CORNERED AT THE RED SEA...HE DID NOT CALL FOR THE ARMY……
HE CALLED ON GOD!

2. WHEN JOSHUA WENT UP AGAINST THE CITY OF JERICHO….HE DID NOT USE BOMBS
HE CALLED ON GOD!

3. WHEN THE HEBREW BOYS WERE FACING A FIERY DEATH...THEY DID NOT CALL FOR FIREMEN…
THEY CALLED ON GOD!

4. WHEN DANIEL WAS ABOUT TO BECOME THE MAIN COURSE IN THE LION DENS….HE DID NOT CALL ON ANIMAL CONTROL….HE CALLED ON GOD!

5. WHEN ESTHER WAS FACED WITH SEEING HER PEOPLE DESTROYED BECAUSE OF PREJUDICE….SHE DID NOT CALL THE ACLU…SHE CALLED ON GOD!

6. WHEN NEHEMIAH SAW THE CITY OF JERUSALEM DESTROYED AND IN RUINS….HE DID NOT CALL THE CITY PLANNERS….HE CALLED ON GOD!

7. WHEN PETER STARTED TO SINK AFTER WALKING ON THE WATER…..HE DID NOT CALL THE COAST GUARD….HE CALLED ON GOD!

WHEN MY SOUL WAS LOST, SINKING IN SIN….WHEN I WAS DYING AND HEADED TO HELL….I DID NOT LOOK TO CAPITOL HILL….
I LOOKED TO CALVARY’S HILL! I CALLED ON GOD.

WHEN YOU ARE IN TROUBLE, DON’T:
1. LOOK AROUND YOU
a. PEERS
b. PILLS
c. PSYCHARICISTS
2. DON’T LOOK BENEATH YOU
*BLAMING SATAN WON’T SOLVE THE PROBLEM

3. DON’T LOOK WITHIN YOU
a. THE HUMANIST SAYS MAN HAS THE ANSWER TO LL HIS OWN PROBLEMS
b. WE CAN’T TRUST OUR SELVES IN TIMES OF TROUBLES (“I HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN THE FLESH…”)

4. DON’T LOOK BEHIND YOU
***RELIVING THE PAST AND ITS FAILURES WILL ONLY DEPRESS YOU.

5. …LOOK ABOVE YOU AND THEN HELP IS ON THE WAY!!!

HOW CAN WE BE SURE THAT WHEN WE LOOK TO GOD HELP IS ON THE WAY?


I. HE IS ABLE
1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

A. HIS POSITION -1 I will lift up mine eyes
1. IN A VALLEY
2. NO PLACE TO LOOK BUT UP
3. MANY OF US ARE STUBBORN AND HAVE TO BE PUT ON OUR BACKS BEFORE WE WILL EVER LOOK UP.

B. HIS PERSPECTIVE –HE WAS IN A

WOW!! AWESOME!
A good sermon, but overuse of capital letters makes it difficult to read
