Welcome to Eastern Hills Baptist Church
We are so glad that you decided to join us in worship today. Here at Eastern Hills we realize that we are all in different places on our journey with Christ, and that's okay. Whether you are a seeker, looking for answers, or a long-time follower of Christ, you are welcome here.
Today's Points:

1) God our strength.

2) God our support.

3) God our shelter.

4) God our Savior.

“Fear argues that the mountains are too big, but faith asserts that the Lord is bigger than the mountains. By adding to the covenantal name Yahweh to the appositional phrase, “the Maker of heaven and earth,” the psalmist views the Lord as both the God of covenant and the God of creation. Because the psalmist has an intimate relationship with the infinite ruler of the universe, his Lord is both willing and able to help him in his time of need. No human problem is beyond the Lord’s purview.”

-- Daniel J. Estes, New American Commentary, Psalms 73-150
"The greatness of any loss is measured by the value of what’s lost. If God is incomparable, then the loss of him must be incomparable. If he’s infinite, then the loss of him must be infinite. If he’s incomprehensible, then the loss of him must be incomprehensible.

The psalmist’s point is that God keeps him from ultimate evil: the loss of God."

-- Yuille, J. Stephen. Longing for Home: a journey through the psalms of ascent.
“Nothing, therefore, on the human side of pilgrimage—the exercise of walking and the hazards of picking our way along a difficult path—will be allowed to come between pilgrims and their goal.”
-- Alec J. Motyer, Journey: Psalms for Pilgrim People
Discuss these questions as a family:
-- Which would you rather visit: The ocean, or the mountains (no saying "mountains by the ocean!")
-- What sorts of problems do you think the mountains worried the psalmist about?
-- What "mountains" do you have in your own life this week?
-- How can I pray for you to rely on God's help with these "mountains" this week?
