Summary: All people need help in life.There are many sources of help but there is only ONE SURE SOURCE!
“I lift up my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth”- Psalm 121:1
We all need help even right now. In one way or the other you need help. Where does your help come from, when you are in need of help who first comes into your mind what is your first port of call? Who is the first person you approach!
The world today is in serious messy, people too are in need of help. Problems are sprouting and mushrooming all over. In your life, your family, your work, your body, your marriage/relationship everywhere, somewhere something is calling for attention. It needs help. The successful and outstanding people in the world are ordinary people who face ordinary problems like you and me. The secret of their success is determined by their treatment to their live problems. Their attitude towards such tough and rough situation makes their destination different. The sun’s heat destroys wax and hardens concrete slab. How you react to the problems in your life determines how problems will treat you. Flowers bud/blooms under stress, juice is obtained under stress, and babies are born under serious stress and pain. Good things of life come under stress. Why are you stroking, dying, hospitalized under stress today? Your help comes from the Lord!
King David was once in such a situation, he tried running away and hiding from his enemies yet he learnt one important thing. Real, true, lasting, Help comes from God. When he lifted up his eyes to the hills there was no help and only discovered that only from God his help came from. He remembered how with a sling and four stones he had killed a giant (Goliath), he remembered how with his bare hands he tore a lion and hyena into pieces. Where are you getting your help today? Money will not solve your marital problems, your possessions will not heal your sickness, and your status/job will not give you love and peace, your boyfriend will not stop you from evil attack. Where are you getting your help from? My help comes from the Lord!
Only from God will your help come from,
Only from God who gave his only begotten Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins,
Only from God who through the shed blood of Christ Jesus will your problems disappear,
Only when you look up to God who knows you better than your doctor will your sickness go away,
Only from God who created husbands and wives will your marriage work best,
Only from God who owns silver and gold will your money, job, wealth give you peace and happiness,
As we go into this Easter holiday remember were your help comes from. When things go wrong know where to focus your eyes upon. In Moses’ time the lifted brazen serpent would give healing when people focus their eyes on it. All who did this were healed and lived; those who didn’t perished. Lift up your eyes on the crucified Jesus Christ, Only from God will your help come from.
My help comes from the Lord!
God bless you!
