Ascending to God

This Psalm is one where the Israelites were ascending to the temple for the annual feasts, but I love the image of people walking to higher ground, together, in order to reach God.

God calls us to higher living when we are His children because we then become a witness to those around us when we follow His ways.

Yet, it can be all too easy to take our troubles to other people, rather than God, especially when we are accused of things that aren’t true.

To ascend means “to climb up” and generally it entails us to look in the direction that we are walking.

So the next time we have troubles…remember to look up and walk towards God, because He is the One who will help us overcome
