Our Help, Part 1

(Based upon Psalm 121)

I lift up my eyes to the hills–from where will my help come?

The road of life is tough, and the need for help continues to grow deeper as pressures and difficulties increase in the ever changing world through which we are traveling.

The places people are looking to in this world fail to meet the needs of life and the deepest needs of the heart. Nothing in the world is secure. Things are changing every day. How can people be helped in these times of so much uncertainty?

My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.

God is the only true helper and the true source of our help. Nothing about His promises are empty—He not only knows our needs, but He provides; He not only listens to our calls for help, but He answers; He not only sees our tears, but He dries them; He not only is acquainted with our burdens, but He lifts them.

    Thank you so much for all of your teachings. They seem to always fit whatever situation I’m going through when I read them. Thank you for letting God work in and through you. I was just thinking of my children and how sorry I am for the what they went through growing up. I thought, that’s in the past, yes, I’m sorry,. We can’t live in the past. It’s gone and can’t be brought back. We need to go forward and make things good. God is my helper, my Father. Only God can make things right. Thank yo, Thank you, Thank you so very much for all you do. May the windows of Heaven Pour out many Blessings upon you day and night. God Bless you

    I love this verse in the bible. Psalm 121 – my help comes from the LORD. How often HE has answered my prayers. How very often HIMSELF. So true this verse I’ve found.
