14er Devotions

Having reached the summit of Mt. Evans, I nestled into the rocks to read some scriptures that referenced mountains.
As I sat there reading and praying, I overheard a teenager saying “this would be a killer place to do quiet times.  Look down there, I think that guy is reading his Bible.”
My mind jumped from Jesus Sermon on the mount to his temptation; and then I started to go through the Psalms of Ascent.
Psalm 121

A song of ascents.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven<sup class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(A)”> and earth.<sup class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(B)”>
He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches<sup class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(C)”> over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over<sup class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(D)”> you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun<sup class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(E)”> will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm<sup class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(F)”>—
    he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.
