Two Keys to Getting the Help You Need
The scripture reveals several keys that can help. I'm going to share with you two.
The first key is to recognize the source of help. It requires judgment on your part. You have to decide who will be the most effective help. The psalmist in Psalm 60:11 succinctly shares his decision as he appeals to God for help stating that "the help of man is useless."
God's help on the other hand is marvelous. The following scriptures reveal the second key as well as revealing who, what, when and why!
- Who - Psalms 121:1-2 I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
- What - Psalms 124:8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
- When - Proverbs 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.
- Why - 1 Corinthians 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.... 1 Corinthians 1:27-29 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.
The Second Key is the Name of the Lord
