Summary: While everything else may fail; His help, support and presence is everlasting.
Psalms 63:7”Because You have been my help, Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.”
Stress, work pressure, late-night work, targets, projects, uncertainty, cut-throat ruthless competition and what not have severely wounded the spirits of people; the question now is what they’re going to do about it. And the answer, I fear, is: not much. We seldom run to God for help, we try every other source other than His Sanctuary don’t we? For one thing, while the Christians have given up on hope, they haven’t given up on fear, though. Fear rules the hearts of people! While the ‘confidence-in-God theory’ appears to be well and truly buried in today’s world, scare stories remain popular. Faith-in-God and His power remains a myth because we have put God and His Word in the shelf and forgotten church, since we are busy tapping away our laptops on Sundays. Anybody listening? Get ready for His Word that would rejuvenate and refresh you today: HE IS OUR HELPER!
It is in the wilderness, when all the other props vanish, that we realize: while everything else may fail; His help, support and presence is everlasting. Amen. David wrote the above scripture in the wilderness, not many of us can sing in the desert, can we? We live in a world that promotes you to cling on to materials, worldly system, modern techniques and skills for help. Just look at the billboards and hoardings that bombard you with retirement plans, life insurance policies and apartments that would offer security. It is alright to plan for them but not at the cost of throwing God away from your life. Are you listening? Don’t allow hyperbolic excesses to mesmerize you; don’t compromise your walk with God for anything in life. We huff and puff to earn and save for the future only to be blown away by the wind and left abandoned. Read Psalm 49:16, 17 “Do not be afraid when one becomes rich, When the glory of his house is increased; For when he dies he shall carry nothing away; His glory shall not descend after him.”
None of the exotic destinations in the world can offer the peace, calmness and quietness that only JESUS can offer in His presence and that’s why David wrote: “My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me.” Friend, if anyone promises the moon, don’t be carried away….pause and think….I tell you today, He is your only Helper. Amen.
I want to mention about Chinese Evangelist Watchman Nee who preached Jesus in China when it was ruled by the Communist Government and was sentenced to jail for his ministry. As he was taken to jail, he embraced his beloved wife and childhood sweet-heart Charity Chang for the last time, she was arrested shortly afterward, and they never saw each other again. Originally sentenced to 15 years, Watchman endured tremendous hardship in prison. He suffered extreme cold in winter and unbearable heat in summer.
