God said He will help us in every circumstance so we rest in that knowledge. For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’ Isaiah 41:13 What more can God say or do then tell us that He is holding our hands and telling us He will help us. He is saying “FEAR NOT” and if he is saying not to fear then we shouldn’t fear. There is an old but false saying that “GOD HELPS THOSE WHO HELP THEMSELVES” this couldn’t be further from biblical truth because God will help those who will depend entirely on Him for help. If we try to help ourselves we block the power of God to enter our circumstances and help us. God said He is holding our hand not that we are holding His hand. He is taking the lead by grabbing our hand and holding it.
God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble so if we humble ourselves under His mighty hand. We open the door for Him to release His super into our natural and then His deliverance comes. What would you rather have God’s help to navigate the complexities of life or depend on your arm of flesh? The answer is obvious isn’t it?
Jeremiah 17:5 “This is what the Lord says:“Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the Lord.” The Almighty says that if we trust in the arm of flesh instead of Him then we are cursed. Our hearts become proud and we turn away from God. This is one of the biggest mistakes we could make to turn from God’s help and trust in man’s help.
How can we trust in man as opposed to God. God who created the universe by speaking it into existence. God will always help us out and He is faithful to help us every time if we come to Him in faith and with the right motives. God can be trusted to always help us when we call on Him.
You cannot trust in a man to help you every time there will be times when human beings will let you down in your time of need. God will never let you down in your hour of need. HE WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN BECAUSE HE WILL ALWAYS HELP YOU.
Proverbs 18:10 “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.” We are helped by the name, just the name brings us help. God’s name is so powerful that it’s a strong tower for the righteous to run into. We hide in the name and we are helped because God’s name is a shelter to the righteous.
The bible is full of scriptures of God helping His children in their times of need and He was always faithful to help them when they cried out to Him. He helps us even when we don’t call out to Him. Where does our never ending help come from?
