|Every Sunday A Psalms: Where Does Your Help Come From?
Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris
Where does my help come from? As a believer my help comes from the Lord. It does not mean people can not help me, it means I trust the Lord to preserve my soul. Something I learn over the years in my own life is God is our protector. As a believer in Christ when I call on the name Jesus I know He will do more then I ask according to His will for my life.
If you ever been in a place you think you would like to loose your faith for any reason, I hope you found rest in the name of Jesus. Over the years I have learn many things about my Lord, but the most profound thing, is his ability to keep us in faith with him, even when everything is not going my way. If you have one of them weeks when your life is upside down and everything around you seems to fall apart, you might say Lord help me. However do you say Lord help me or just say it as if you are reading a slogan on a sign post. Saying not in vain, but knowing God will help you in your situation. Jesus does not always remove the situation, but he will take you through it.
There are days when one can not face what is happening around them, but there nothing that God will not walk you through if you trust in Him. Sometimes it is hourly prayer and sometimes it is that need of constant reminder God will help. Over the miles in life every twist and turn can lead a person through a river or ravine because of a washed out bridge, or a good pot hole in the middle of the road. Something easily run over and others holes must be propelled down and climbed back up the other side. Life is not the constant mountain top experience, but even fog can distort your ability to see on the mountain. The mountain has a beautiful view of the valley only on the mountain ridge. Yet the mountain beyond the over look just looks like another wooded or open field. The mountaintop experience is no longer felt. When walk with God during the mountaintop experience the valley looks inviting, but the reality is one has no desire to propel down the mountain, instead they long to walk through the field and woods of the mountain.
Why go down in the valley when their plenty of terrain in open field on the mountain, it is because of those others in the valley need to know of the mountain. Lord takes you through the valley so others around you can see the way to the mountain. God will use all your inadequacy as well has your abilities that come through Him to lead people up and through those difficult roads up to the mountaintop.
God will keep you through the valley, and through the mountaintop experiences. He will protect and enable you through life journey. He will be my rock and fortress no matter what comes. Lord is your keeper if you will trust in Him. If you will believe.
Dear Heavenly Father remind me daily where my help comes from especially going through trials in life. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
