Our help is in the name of the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.
LORD Jesus, we humbly come before You now to seek help from You. Enable us to face this day and keep us near Your side. If You are for us who or what could ever be against us? You are our Strength, our mighty God, the Peace and Comfort we need. Renew us day by day and guide us on the right path that leads into Your everlasting Kingdom. In Jesus’ wonderful name we pray. Amen.
While facing troublesome times we usually seek help from all sorts of sources: the bank for our financial needs, medical teams for physical healing, and counsellors for whatever went wrong in our families. It’s the quick relief we are looking for, isn’t it?
Of course we don’t want to suffer. Pain hurts and is uncomfortable, discipline attacks our ego, debt numbs our self-worth, and having to face death is one of the hardest things to do.
Why God? Why?
I don’t know what it is you are struggling with today, and I cannot give you an answer to the ‘Why’ God would allow this in your life. This I know, though, that there is help in the name of the LORD.
Whenever you are falling into a tough time in your life you need to turn to the God of your salvation for help. Put aside all explanations and worldly solutions and seek Him first. Then follow His advice in where to turn to, which doctor to consult, and so on.
If you are already facing hard times seek God for help. All counsel, one by one, will fall into place as soon as you trust in the LORD and do not lean unto your own understanding — seek His Way and not your own.
We often don’t see the purpose behind God allowing hardships into our lives at first. It isn’t until much later on, in some case maybe never, that we see the meaning behind our suffering.
What we most desperately need is to stay close to our LORD — the Word of God. He will give us strength, in fact, He will be our Strength to face the day. If God be for us, who or what could be against us? He promises us in His Word that He IS our Refuge and Strength and very present Help in time of trouble. (Psalm 46:1)
Know that your Help is in the name of the LORD who made heaven and earth.
