God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present HELP in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
Life without HELP is nothing short of a HELL experience. We all need help. We are born helpless. We are where we are because someone helped us. From the the first day to the last, help is needed. Even the dead need help to have a decent burial. The baby needs help, the student needs help, the business executive needs help, the spouse needs help, the leader of the most powerful nation needs help.
Everyone needs help. The right kind of help at the right time.
Our help varies, but nonetheless it is needed.
1 Sometimes it’s just help to pick oneself after some setbacks.
1 Samuel 23:16
And Saul’s son Jonathan went to David at Horesh and HELPED HIM FIND STRENGTH IN GOD.
2. So today, don’t hesitate to call out to GOD our Loving Father for HELP. Life can be a scary patch without help
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and HELP you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
3. Do so with Confidence
Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to HELP in good time for every need [appropriate HELP and well-timed HELP, coming just when we need it].
