I will look up to the hills (Psalm 121 :1-2 ) and pray that my flight to the hills is not in winter. ( Matthew 24 :20-21 ). Lifting up of my eyes is used as a metaphor,in preparedness of my concerns, fears, hopes within my mind and spirit would be upwards in the confidence of my faith in the God of the hills the One who is greater than anyone from ” above. ”
I pray that my fleeing to the hills won’t be in the winter season. It would not be convenient for me to flee,very bad weather conditions freezing rain,black ice, walls of snow, slushy roads.These conditions would be putting me at high risks with the elements, it would not matter the emergency plan prepared .
