GOD IS YOUR HELP
“Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield” (Psalm 33:20).
One of the greatest discoveries you can ever make in your life is to recognize that God is your help. When this truth dawns on you, you’ll never be frustrated, irrespective of how terrible the situation around you is. Man’s help may be inadequate or short-lived, but God is able to do exceeding abundantly above what you ask or desire (Ephesians 3:20). And His help will surely stand the test of time.
Psalm 127:1 says, “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.” In other words, no matter what your efforts are, they are in vain without the Lord. There is nothing you or anyone can do without the Lord. In fact, Jesus said, “…without me ye can do nothing” (John 15:5).
The reason many don’t experience God’s help in their lives as they should is that they are overwhelmed easily by their challenges. Moreover, their focus is on the help they seek from men. “Do you want to be healed?” Jesus asked the paralytic by the pool of Bethesda. Instead of saying, “Yes! I want to be healed,” he began to complain about his condition and how there was no one to help him into the pool every time the angel stirred the water. He almost missed his miracle right there because he had become overwhelmed by his situation and his focus was on man’s help (John 5:1-9).
Don’t let the problem you’re facing becloud your vision of a better, prosperous, healthier and fulfilling life. Let God touch your life with His power and glory. There’s nothing you cannot do through the power of God that is working in your life. The Holy Spirit has been sent by God the Father to help you. He is your Helper, Strengthener, Counsellor, Guide, Instructor, and Teacher. He alone has lifting power, healing power, helping power or any other power you require in your life today. That power is going to work on your behalf today.
