Probably one of the prettiest roads we’ve ever taken is the San Juan Skyway, or the Million Dollar Highway, in southwestern Colorado. It roughly runs parallel to the path of the narrow gauge railways and traverses through some of the world’s most beautiful mountains, filled with wildflower meadows, alpine lakes, historic towns, and more. You can actually ride on a narrow gauge railway, the historic Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, or visit the gold mine meccas of Silverton, Ouray, and Telluride along this road.
It’s not a drive for the faint of heart, as many parts of it have drop-offs that lack guard rails. But it is gorgeous, displaying the majesty of God’s creation.
“Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Psalm 124:8.
Our help in difficulty, our help in doubts, our help in disaster is the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. He is our help in temptation and our help in trials. There is no other help that we need, although we may seek it elsewhere.
He is more than able, as Maker of heaven and earth, to help us in our time of need. He created all that we see, and He is able to protect us from all we cannot see. Think about the power of this. All the strength, wisdom, might, and ability that is behind every single thing in all of creation is available to us as our help! Why would we ever seek any other source of help than Almighty God?
What do you need help with today? Finances, relationships, direction, parenting, marriage, health? You have a reliable and loving God who is willing and able to give you all the help you could ever need.
