Focus on God
GOD IS MY HELP

Each one of us have cried out for help at one time or
another.  Sometimes we just need someone to help us with
minor assistance.  Other times, we are in great need.  Life
situations can hit all of us with a ferocity that seems
insurmountable.  "How can I make it through this?"  
"Somebody help!"

The Psalmist wrote a song that describes the nature of God
to help.  "My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven
and earth."  (Psalm 121:2)  He goes on to say, "He will not
allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber."  
(Psalm 121:3)

Notice that the one who can help is the one who made
heaven and earth!   I don't know about you but I am truly
excited with this thought.  The one who created all that
exists is more than able to handle the problem I'm facing!  
There is no need to fear tests and trials that can overtake us
when we settle on the fact that God, the Maker, can fix it all!

Nothing is impossible with God, the Maker of heaven and
earth!  Just when it seems like the end has come, we can be
encouraged to trust that God is able!

Secondly, we can remember that God will not allow our foot
to slip.  I grew up battling icy sidewalks.  Sometimes it was
so dangerous, I would walk slowly and deliberately.  In a life
with many pitfalls and dangers, we are wise to walk slowly
and deliberately.  God will keep us from falling if we are
careful to listen to his cautions.

Finally, God will keep us faithfully and completely.  While
all of us must sleep, God is not a man that is in need of
sleep.  He is always and forever aware of my needs and
yours.

I Peter 1:5 reminds us that we are protected by the power of
God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the
last time.

Are God's people entitled to trial-free lives?  Of course not!  
We all know that there will be times that we will need help.  
Isn't it good to know that we know the one who created all
things, will keep us from falling, and is always and forever
watching over us?

The key is for us to keep our eyes on our Help!
