“My Help Comes From the Lord”

my help

by Dona Hake

 “My help comes from the Lord,
the Creator of heaven and earth!”

Psalm 121:2  New English Translation

I serve a breathtaking God.  I look at all the beautiful things around me and I believe that He created it.  I do not sit and try to rationalize how He did it.  I just believe He did, because He is God.

I think about how He has promised to be my help.  The question I am pondering now as I write this is do I only ask Him for help in the impossible things.  I can only imagine that our God really wants to help us more than we would ever realize at times.  When someone offers to help you they are desiring to give or provide what is necessary to accomplish a task or satisfy a need.  Face it…all too often we really do not know what to do or which way to turn and God, the maker of heaven and earth knows exactly how to handle our problem.

I guess I am wondering how many times He is desiring to assist me in things and I just set out on my own and do it in my own ability.  I think as we get God’s all encompassing wisdom and power in all that we do that things will go even better.

God in deed has created the heavens and the earth but let us remember that He is well able to assist us in the tiniest of details in our everyday walk with Him.    He is our help and He is well able to make the difference in the big and in the small.
