PRAYER FOR GOD’S HELP
Bible Reading: Psalms 121:1-8
“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore.”
Prayer for God’s help is one of the essential prayers for our daily living. There have been several times many of us have relied on a man to help us, only to meet with disappointment, and it has made life miserable for many. Generally, it is a human habit to seek help from people around them which includes, parents, husband or wife, siblings, friends, boss or coworkers, children or pastors at certain periods one thinks any of them has help to offer. Seeking help from people is not acceptable by God because it is a curse.
“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusted in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departed from the LORD. For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.” Jeremiah 17:5-6
The above Bible verses affirmed that the word of God rebukes people who seek help in their fellow mortals. No man can help you if God doesn’t move him to do so.
Moreover, in Isaiah 41:10 the Lord God urge you: “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.”
On many occasions, the situation may seem against you. The storms may rage violently against you in any area. Life’s harder sides may seem to be facing you. At these critical moments, there will always be options: to look inward, around, downward, or upward. Yet, the Lord said: “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.”
“It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8
Beloved, when you look inward during challenges, you will become depressed. Why? You want to blame yourself for your misfortunes, and this won’t help. The best to do is to look unto Jesus Christ because He already promised you to help you.
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord you God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.” Isaiah 43:1-3
Have you ever seen someone promised you as Jesus did? There is no one! you will agree with me that anytime you look around for someone’s help all result in nothing. Believe me, there is no one around to wipe your tears away and no one can help you if God doesn’t. Make it your attitude from today not to look for man’s help, instead, look unto Jesus the only One that can help you in any situation at any time in anywhere.
Remember that, the human being has life’s encounters to battle with. You just have to face yours. To look downward or seek man’s help is to give up on yourself and end in disappointment without remedy. Don’t look downward; there is no help in doing so. The only solution to your predicaments can be provided by Jesus Christ. It is high time you looked up to Jesus Christ who alone knows the true dimension of, and solution to your suffering and sorrows.
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
Your total trust must be on Jesus Christ and completely surrender everything unto Him. As you begin to seek His face in fasting, prayers, meditation in His Holy Scripture, and living holily and godly, trust Him to send help at the right time.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1.
The only helper that does not fail is Jesus Christ. He has everything to help and end your challenges. He never fades or fails! Be diligent, patient and consistent in your seeking. You will surely experience uncommon help your family has not enjoying before.
