Today we’re meditating upon the truth that God is our very present help at ALL times, but especially in the times of trouble.
God is our refuge and strength, a help always near in times of great trouble. (Ps 46:1 CEB)
In my distress I called on the Lord, and cried for help to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, and my cry for help came before Him to His ears. (Ps 18:6 MEV)
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. (Ps 121:2 NIV)
Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. (Ps 124:8 NKJV)
I am the Lord your God. I am holding your hand, so don’t be afraid. I am here to help you. (Isa 41:13 CEV)
As these passages from the Scriptures remind us, God is not only our refuge and strength, but He is the One who helps us.
Whenever we are in trouble, pain or distress, the Lord wants us to turn to Him for help and for deliverance. Who better to help us than the very One who created the heaven and the earth? Because the Lord is holding our hand, we need never be afraid. We can be assured that He is ever with us to help us, deliver us, and to save us. Glory be to God most High!
