God Is Our Help

Psalm 46:1; "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."

This verse is a really special verse. It tells us what God is to us and what He does in time of our need. He never leaves us. When we feel that He has left us it isn't Him but us. The Word tells us He will never leave nor forsake us. Hebrews 13:5; "...I will never leave thee nor forsake thee." We can always rely on what God's Word says to us.

God doesn't help us just in some things but all things. Psalm 54:4; "Behold, God is mine helper..." If He is our helper then that means in everything as He didn't say 'something's,' 'sometime' or 'maybe' so we can always count on Him. Never be afraid to ask the Lord for help, He wants us to ask Him for help. He already knows we need help so we need not be afraid to ask Him. If we are afraid or in need of anything we need to talk to the Lord about it. We can talk to Him about our fears, emotions, and hurts as this is what He wants us to do. By doing this it reveals our trust in Him. We will be comforted just by knowing we have someone to go to and knowing He will guide us. Psalm 48:14 tells us this very thing; "For this God is our God for ever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death." What more can we ask for?

Have you ever thought that what you want or need is to frivolous to talk to the Lord about? Well, if you might think that, why not talk to the Lord about it? It will be worth your time to go to the Lord in prayer and talk to Him. If God is the God of our life then who better to go to than the Lord.

Who is it that gives us our strength? Psalm 18:1; "I will love thee, O Lord, my strength." When we have troubles we know we may call on the Lord and He will give us the strength we need to get through them. God has given us an answer for every single thing we may need. If we are in need, if we need strength, if we are sick, if we are lonely and need to talk to someone, He is there. Remember God will never leave us, He is right there when we need Him.

Those of us who desire more of God and yearn for His presence may experience a delay in this but the believer will continue longing for God and to seek after Him. Blessings are awaiting for those who hunger and long after His righteousness, we should never settle for less than His full blessings, Matthew 5:6; "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled." Are you thirsty and hunger for the righteousness of God? If you are and you are in all honestly seeking for the righteousness of God then be prepared for the blessings He has for you. Get excited about it, praise Him above all for He is worthy to be praised.

We who love the Lord should be going around singing praises to Him. With His love in us we should show our love to everyone we meet. We should go around and shout to the world the glory of our Lord. Tell everyone what He does for us and how we feel when the Lord blesses us above all blessings. There is no better feeling than knowing the Lord is with us continually and someday we will be at home in heaven with Him. Praise Him, Praise Him.

Thanks for stopping by and blessings to all.
