I love to jeep high up in the San Juans of Colorado. The sight of these majestic Rockies takes my breath away. I take a deep breath of cool, crisp, clean mountain air. Dainty flowers of every hue poke up their colorful heads. A few yards below aspens and blue spruce lift up their branches to the sky.
Does God's presence hover nearer at the mountain tops than in the deep ravines? The Bible tells me God is everywhere. He promised never to leave me nor forsake me. However, at the peaks I feel like I can almost reach out and touch my Creator.
The Psalmist expressed it well when he said, "I will lift up my eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth...The LORD is thy keeper."
He looked unto Jehovah God for help. He knew the LORD was his Keeper.
The LORD is my Keeper, too. As much as I love the beautiful Colorado mountains, I will look up to Him and not to His creation.
As I reflect on God's keeping power, I recall words that Lida Shivers Leech wrote in 1911:
God's way is the best way,
God's way is the right way,
I'll trust in Him alway,
He knoweth the best.
