(The Lord Is Your Help And Helper)
TO THE BIBLE – Psalm 33:20
“Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield.”
There’re several scriptures in the Bible that tells us to depend on the Lord and not on men or chariots. This brings to mind about the encounter between Jesus and the paralytic by the pool of Bethesda. Jesus asked him, “Do you want to be healed?” 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).
The reason many don’t experience God’s help in their lives as they should is that they’re easily overwhelmed by their challenges. Moreover, their focus is on the help they seek from men. 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.
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 can’t 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.
2 Chronicles 32:7-8; Psalm 124:8
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for strengthening my heart and my faith in you with your Word. You’ve made me strong and courageous, therefore, I refuse to be dismayed by any challenge I face, for you are my help, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
