Topic : Help From Above
Verses: Psalm 121:1-3, Psalm 20: 1-2, Psalm 66:18, Psalm 24:8, Hebrews 4:15-16
In this journey of life, anyone would readily agree we can’t fight all our battles on our own no matter how tough you are physically, it’s no gaurantee of victory and the truth is many try to do so on their own without help and surely fail. The bible lets us know that we have ready and waiting help in every situation if we can only ask for it.
Psalm 121:1-3 (KJV);
” 1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.“
Being a christian/Child of God automatically gives us the grace to call for help in any situation and we will receive it but as with anything in life there are conditions. Just like when the military send their troops out to battle, support, medicare and supplies are sent when SOS messages are received on the condition that they recognize the sender as one of their own.
When we have no relationship with God, only calling when we get into trouble there’s a high chance of our SOS message not being received or acknowledged because of lack of communication or hindrances like sin.
Psalm 66:18 KJV;
“If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.”
This is why some people get angry or disillusioned about their faith saying when i need Him and called on him i got no help or answer. The question should be did you do the right thing to get a sure and speed answer. It might sound foolish to ask but reason this: If your phone batteries are dead can you make emergency calls? With the answer being no, you then cannot blame the police or ambulance for not coming to your aid when you need it the most.
There is nothing impossible, or too hard or too high or too big for God to do, he created the world and all within it. We just need to establish a direct connection to him by making Jesus our Lord and Personal saviour and letting the Holy Spirit fill our lives.
Romans 8:14 KJV;
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”
Benefits of Being Sons/Daughters of The LORD

– He can uplift the poor and dejected. 1 Samuel 2:8
– He makes sinners become priests, 1 Timothy 1:15

May God gives us the grace to rely only on him and to stay always in his presence. AMEN.
