Unfailing Help From Above

Key Verse

“But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee” (Psalm 5:11).

TEXT — Psalm 5:8-12


Saving Private Ryan is a 1998 American epic war film story of Captain John Miller’s risky mission to save one man from the war after his three brothers were killed in the battle (WW2 of 1939-45). Though entirely fictional, this film demonstrated the unbreakable battlefield contract: “We will leave no one, dead or alive, in the hands of the enemy”. The fear of being left alone without help is one of the worst human feelings that has fuelled suicide and other life-ending acts.

Better than the army in any nation, God’s mercy and faithfulness will rescue believers from any battle any day. This comforting realisation should always make believers rejoice in the Lord while having the assurance that He will never abandon them. We should rest assured of His protection and rejoice under same.

Our Help is ever-present and unfailing. No true believer in Christ should doubt or fear whether God will come to his aid in challenging times. It is a covenant that God cannot break. He is an ever-present Help in trouble. He is dependable and available with supreme power to deliver His own from any captivity, irrespective of the enemies’ stronghold. Earthly help is limited; but the help from above is limitless and superior to whatever earthlings can muster.

Depending on earthly assistance is a forlorn hope. It is undependable. Only the sure help from the Omnipotent is worth boasting about. In these last days, as evil men wax worse in wickedness and unfaithfulness, children of God should resolve like the psalmist: “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help” (Psalm 121:1).

Thought for the day

Neither the size of your problem nor the potency of your foes counts when God is with you.
