Absolutely, Our Best Helper!
THE BEST HELPER in life is GOD!
GOD is everywhere, always present. Those who would often willingly help us are often too far away, or not always available. Not so with God. He is always ready, and nothing is too difficult for Him.
“God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble” (Psalm 46:1).
GOD has everything we need already available – right now! God is rich in mercy! He is rich in goodness! He is rich in grace! And He is rich in glory! He wants you to be the beneficiary of all He is.
When you go through deep waters and great trouble, He says, “I will be with you.” When you go through rivers of difficulty, He says, “You will not drown”! When you walk through the fire of oppression, He says, “You will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you” (Isaiah 43:2).
And this same God Who takes care of me “Will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
GOD is our very willing Helper! Don’t doubt this truth. Troubles are sent, not to drive us from God, but to draw us closer to Him. Talk to God and give Him your burdens and fears. You can trust Him!
“Yes, and the Lord will deliver me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to His Heavenly Kingdom. To God be the glory forever and ever. Amen” (2 Timothy 4:18).
Don't worry about anything! Instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done (Philippians 4:6).
“Trust Me in your times of trouble, and I will rescue you” (Psalm 50:15).
GOD is a loving God. His love is unchanging, as well as everlasting. It never runs out. It is awesome to know and experience God’s unfailing love. God’s love is right there for you, right now! Receive it, rest in it, enjoy it, be confident in it! There is nothing more wonderful than to know that unchanging love of God!
“I have loved you, My people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to Myself” (Jeremiah 31:3).
GOD never fails to help us. His everlasting arms are our support and protection. He would not be GOD if that were not so!
“The eternal God is your refuge, and His everlasting arms are under you” (Deuteronomy 33:27).
GOD never changes! God is unchanging throughout time and all eternity.
What an assurance of His promises and of His plans! In a changing world it is wonderful to feel secure in the hands of an unchanging God. Make very sure that you know you are in His loving and strong hands right now!
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
Please Pray This Prayer:
“Dear God, I thank You that You are Who Your Word declares. You are the All-Powerful, Unchanging, Eternal God, Who is totally trustworthy, reliable and true to His Word. Please forgive me for any doubts that I have had concerning You. I want to know You personally and powerfully. I want to know more of that great security of Your love that You have toward me. I am so privileged to know You as my personal Saviour, Friend and Lord. Let me show by my life that You do indeed live inside of my life, and that others can be encouraged and impacted because of their seeing You in me. In Jesus’ name I pray these things, Amen.”
