Hope and Help
November 29, 2010 § Leave a comment
Hope is to know that help sometimes come in ways that we could not foresee or cannot explain afterwards. It is when the odds are stacked against us from all human perspectives that we can see God’s help most clearly. The poet of Psalm 124 speaks from an apparent desperate situation (124:1-5) to praise God as the Helper responsible for an escape from this situation (124:6-8). He had a real experience of “our help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth” (124:8). Can you tell similar stories? Are their currently anything in your life that requires the desperate intervention of God in the midst of a seemingly impossible situation? Pray today in the name of the Lord, Maker of heaven and earth, to come to your rescue.
