Memorise: And he said, if the Lord do not help thee, whence shall I help thee? out of the barnfloor, or out of the winepress. – 2 Kings 6:27
READ: PSALM 121:1-3 (KJV)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 SAMUEL 28-31
I once told my children that, based on human experience, life is generally believed to be hard and full of sorrows.
A combination of factors may be responsible for this. First among these is found in (1 Peter 5:8)
“…your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”
Furthermore, Genesis 3:17 says: “…Cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it…” The Implication of these passages on unsaved people is so great that Job 14:1 had to say
“Man that is born of woman is of few days, and full of trouble.”
For the above reasons, every human being needs divine help and support. In the name that is above all others, you receive divine help to carry on in life. Isaiah 41:10 says:
“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: Be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; Yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
Yes, our God is ever ready to help in times of trouble, but Christians seem to take this for granted until things begin to get out of hand. Whenever you are with sin or addicted to a bad habit, when you find yourself moving in cycles of poverty and delayed fulfilment of prophecies; it is time to seek divine help. Remember that only God’s help gives permanent solutions to human problems. In line with Hebrews 4:16,
“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need”
you must first obtain mercy. Genuinely give your life to Christ, meditate on God’s word at all times (Joshua 1:8-9) and depend completely on the Holy Spirit to access divine help. This is the secret of my success in life and ministry as the General overseer of the RCCG. I cannot thank God enough for the tremendous help I always enjoy from Him. I pray the Lord will send divine help to you today in the mighty name of Jesus.
Father, please let Your divine help be available to me always, in the mighty name of Jesus.
