Midweek Morsel: Our Help Is in God

2403346923_be16fd3eee_z“Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Psalm 124:8

As believers, think of the mighty help that is available to us through our heavenly Father. The very Maker of heaven and earth loves us and stands ready to help us at all times. No better help can be found.

The Bible is filled with passages that describe our God, our divine Helper, but today let’s look at a few more verses from the Psalms. Read and be blessed by these words that David sang after the Lord had delivered him from his enemies:

“You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning;
my God turns my darkness into light.
With your help I can advance against a troop;
with my God I can scale a wall.

. . . He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.
For who is God besides the Lord?
And who is the Rock except our God?
It is God who arms me with strength
and makes my way perfect.” Psalm 18:28-32

Anyone in need of help today? Why not turn to the Maker of heaven and earth?

  1. Cheryl – Thanks for this lovely reminder that God is always there to help us along the way.

  2. My sweet baby grandson had major surgery today and I’m confident God guided his doctor when performing the surgery and provided my grandson the strength to get through it. I’m beyond thankful for our Maker!

    • Tamra, I’m so sorry your precious grandson had to have surgery but so glad to hear that he made it through okay. I’m sure you are indeed beyond thankful. I pray that he will recover as well quickly as possible!
