Summary: Our ability to help is limited by time, and resources but Christ is as close as the mention of His name, with everything you need.
46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
What is it that each and everyone of need right now more than anything?
Is it money? Is it the accumulation of more things? The Lord knows that we have enough.
Do you have the "If I only had" syndrome?
Friends, What we need is Help. The help that only God can give.
I can help you fix something, mow your grass, carry something. I can give you a dollar, feed you a meal,
But I can’t heal sick bodies or broken hearts.
I can’t make you holy or deliver you from enslaving habits.
I can’t make ways where there are no ways, meet needs of a spiritual nature.
But I know who can. The same who made the universe. His name is Jesus.
A girl in total despair, on a radio talk show, was asked if there is one thing she could ask God for, what would it be? She answered "HELP"
Motorcycle cop crying for help in Arlington, Tx after being shot in the mouth by a motorist that he had pulled over. (A 911 call, played back on the radio) A desperate cry for help.
What is the one word that turns God’s ears and attention toward us? Help.
He will shut down heaven if need be to get to us, and here is proof.
Can you prove that? I’m glad you ask.
7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
17 But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
9 Behold, the Lord GOD will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.
6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
How many testimonies could we receive, here in this service, of how Jesus came to your rescue when you cried for help?
There is help for us tonight.
Wouldn’t the Bible be a good place to convince us of this truth?
Is God a respecter of persons?
Who came to the rescue when the children of Israel cried when they were in Egypt bondage?
Who came to bring sight to blind Bartimais when he cried out?
Who brought strength to the legs of the man at the gate called Beautiful when he cried out?
Who put forth His hand and caught Peter when he was sinking and crying out to be saved from drowning?
Wouldn’t Jesus do all of these things and more for us?
If He would pay the price for us, I believe He is going to protect His interest, and that is you and I.
We teach our children to scream for help if they feel threatened, shouldn’t we do the same?
What happens when we cry out to God?
4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:
