My Dear Brothers and Sisters, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Psalms 121:2 “My help comes from the Lord. Who made heaven and earth.”
From the above context we learn that when we need God’s help, he will always help us. When we go through a crisis in our life, we usually look to others for help. But David says, “My help comes from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.” We are in need of help that is powerful, efficient, constant, we need a very present help in trouble. The Bible says, God is our refuge and strength. A very present help in trouble. What a mercy that we have it, in Our God. Our hope is in Jehovah for our help comes from him. Help is on the way and will not fail to reach us in due time. God who sends His blessings is never known to be late.
The creator is aware of every emergency, and situations that need His help. Therefore let us be very joyful in our infinite helper, who is willing to bow even the hills themselves to help you. We are bound to look beyond heaven and earth to Him who made them both, rather than put our trust upon the creatures of the earth. In this Psalm, the Psalmist directs and encourages us to repose ourselves and our confidence in God, and by faith to put ourselves under His protection, and commit ourselves to His care. David assures himself of help from God and therefore says, “I will lift up my eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help.” The Psalmist encourages us to put our trust upon God as a God of power. David did so and found the benefit of it. Therefore we must fetch in help from God by faith in His promise, for God himself has undertaken to be our protector.
God is not only at your right side, but He will keep the feet of his saints from being hurt. He will have an eye, upon them in their motions. He will never allow you to be tempted beyond your strength. He will prevent you from falling in sin. The sun shall not smite you with his heat by day nor the moon with her cold and moisture by night. He will keep your feet from falling. He will keep His eye upon you in all the directions you go. The Lord shall preserve you from all evil. He will continue His care over you from this time forth and even from evermore. He will preserve you in his heavenly kingdom. Trust in Him for He will carry you through.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we praise you for rendering help to us. You are a divine God, You made the heaven and the earth. Yet you are ready to help us when we call. Teach us not to trust on creatures but on the creator. May you be a present help in our trouble.
In Jesus name we pray.
