One Year Bible: I Kings 1:1-53, Acts 4:1-37; Psalm 124:1-8; Proverbs 16:24
Our help is in the name of the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
Who better to have helping you than the God who created everything and who, by his power, sustains it! All other helpers will fall short and will ultimately fail, but there is One who never fails. And best of all, he is yours and you are his.
Better yet, he needs no convincing to act on your behalf. By virtue of your being his child, he not only stands at the ready to help you, he actually goes ahead of you and prepares the way before you get there. (Isaiah 45:2) He commands you not to fear, for he will lead you and guide you into good success wherever you go. (Joshua 1:3,7-9) He has promised you health and prosperity, joy and purpose, righteousness and wisdom. (Proverbs 3:5-6; 4:11) He says he will stand beside you and walk with you—especially when the going gets rough. (Isaiah 43:2) And he will even be your rear guard—he’s got you covered. (Isaiah 55:8).
What an awesome reality—God is on your side, and therefore, as you stay on God’s side, you cannot fail. So many people place their trust in people and institutions that are at best temporal, but those who trust in the Lord for his help will not be disappointed.
Isaiah 49:23 says of those who find their help in the Lord, “Kings will be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers. They will bow down before you with their faces to the ground; they will lick the dust at your feet. Then you will know that I am the LORD; those who hope in me will not be disappointed.”
Hallelujah, with God as your God, help wanted is help received!
“When you have no helpers, see your helpers in God. When you have many helpers, see God in all your helpers. When you have nothing but God, see all in God. When you have everything, see God in everything. Under all conditions, stay thy heart only on the Lord. ”
