Between Two Mountains

Between Two Mountains

Bible Meditation:

Psalm 23:4

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil…

Psalm 121:1

Devotional Thought:

…I lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

In Psalm 23, David speaks of walking in “the valley.”  But there can be no valley without mount-tains, true?  Psalm 23 is the “valley psalm” between two “mountain psalms,” Psalm 22 deals with the crucifixion of the Messeah.  Psalm 24 deals with the coronation of the Messiah and the Second Coming.  So in the valley of Psalm 23, on one side are the blood-drenched slopes of Mount Calvary and on the other are the sunlit peaks of mount Zion.

Action Point:

Are you down in the valley?  Then look to the mountains.  Praise him for dying for you and rejoice in the hope of His coming again!  Thank God we can say with David, “…I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills…”
