Here are Bible verses that remind us that when we need God’s help, we may need it suddenly and abruptly!
Come quickly to help me, my Lord and my Savior. (Ps 38:22 NIV)
Be pleased to save me, Lord; come quickly, Lord, to help me. (Ps 40:13 NIV)
Come closer, God! Please hurry and help. (Ps 71:12 CEV)
Lord, I cry out to You; make haste to me! Give ear to my voice when I cry out to You. (Ps 141:1)
The above verses show human beings calling upon the Lord for immediate and speedy help. We all turn to God in fear and anguish when we are facing some sort of crisis in our lives. But remember, God has already declared Himself as our Savior and Redeemer. (Isa 49:26; 60:16).
So we can have complete assurance that He hears and answers our prayers. (Pro 15:29; Joh 16:24; 1 Joh 5:14-15) Look up some of these verses and meditate upon them to build your faith.
Behold, the Lord rides on a swift cloud, and will come into Egypt; the idols of Egypt will totter at His presence, and the heart of Egypt will melt in its midst. (Isa 19:1, emphasis added)
The word “totter” means to stagger, wobble, quake, or lurch. When God’s power comes into a circumstance or a life, every false god and demon quakes and falls in fear and defeat. They recognize that Jesus is the Victorious One. (Joh 16:33; Col 2:15)
Notice that the imagery in Isaiah 19:1 mentions a swift cloud, which gives us a clue as to the decisiveness of the Lord when He has determined to take action on behalf of His people. So, in your moment of need, trust in the Lord and in His abiding and perfect love for you. Understand that the Lord will move swiftly (instantly) on your behalf at exactly the best moment—the one that He knows will bring about the most blessings for you.
As a matter of fact, the Bible tells us that the Lord LEADS US IN TRIUMPH in Christ. (2 Cor 2:14) Hallelujah! Allow Him (trust Him) to lead you triumphantly in every situation.
