Look To God Who Is Our Helper

Where do you go for help? I mean, when life hits you with a haymaker and you are down and discouraged, where do you go?
Most of us go to our spouse or a close friend or family. We will call them and pour out our heart or our anger. We may even try to think of someone who has some “connections” that we think can help us. I’ve been there.. I understand.
But, as Christians, our first move should be to the Lord. The Psalmist said, “I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; From where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth” (Psalm 121:1-2).
The Psalmist goes on to say, “He will not allow your foot to slip, He who keeps you will not slumber” (Psalms 12:3). Think about that… “He will not allow your foot to slip…” God upholds us.
Now, let’s break this down.. what does this mean? It means that God loves us and will help us. But HOW does He help us? God may encourage us through the the Holy Spirit. God may cause a verse of scripture to pop into our minds. God may prompt a Christian friend to reach out to us.
The flip side of this is that God may want to use us to be the arms of God reaching out to someone. Maybe God brings someone to your mind. If so, God may be prompting you to help them.
The Psalmist said, “I will lift up my eyes to the mountains… from where shall my help come? It comes from the Lord.”
Two-thousand years ago, man needed help from God. Man needed a Savior. Man could not save himself. He had tried but nothing worked. Man simply could not be good enough to go to heaven. So, God had to do something and God did.
The Bible says that “when the fullness of time came, God sent forth His Son…” (Gal. 4:4). God sent help from heaven in the form of Jesus. So now, man can be saved.
Today whatever you are struggling with, God wants to and will help. We have to trust Him.
