My Help Comes from the Lord Psalm 121:2 NKJV
By Grace On Jun 11, 2013
The Bible says that God is an ever-present help in time of need. God is with us. The Lord is kind and merciful, the Bible says, to all who trust in Him, to all who call upon Him. He will help us. He will help me and He will help you. We do not need to become anxious for things beyond our control. Nothing is outside of God's control. Not one thing.
Trust in the Lord and be assured in your heart that He will act on your behalf, He gave His own Son for us all. Will He not also, with Him, freely provide for our needs? The scarier things get, the more we need to give God praise. Not because we are crazy, and not because we don't understand the seriousness of life's difficulties. But because we know that the battle is not ours. God is He who watches over us. The Lord, kind and merciful, is He who answers our prayers.
Jesus said that the Father delights to give us the kingdom. He also taught very clearly that we are to trust God for all our needs. Did He not give us the example of the birds who do not produce goods for trading or gather food into barns? Did He not say that the Father feeds them? And did the Lord Jesus not teach us that God clothes the flowers in such rich colors - flowers of the open meadows that are here today and gone tomorrow? The Lord is good to provide and He will provide.
It is good for us to learn to depend on God. It is good for us to trust in God, as our currency claims we do. It is good for us to know the Lord and to serve Him.
If you find yourself staring out at the hills, or the far horizon, wondering how and when your help will come, you are not alone. Many Americans are facing times they never thought they would see. Times come and go. Storms come and go. One year is rich and fat and another is lean. But God never changes. He helps us in good times and bad. He is with us in the boat and with us along the dusty road. He is with us when we are born into this world and with us as we go out again. The Lord will not leave us or forsake us. He will carry us through the fire, through the deep waters, and all through the darkest night. The Lord will keep us. Blessed be the name of the Lord. Amen.
