God My Helper

“Behold, God is mine helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.” (Psalm 54:4)

The universal cry for help is “Help!” I hope you have never had to yell that as you went under for the second time. (They tell me you only go down for the third time). The fact is that in life we need help. Maybe not in a life and death situation, but when you are stretched beyond your strength or knowledge.

To help is to give aid, to protect, and to provide. If you are first responder, you spend most of your time helping people in distress. If you are in the financial arena, there are always people who need financial help.

David said that God is my helper. It’s interesting that he didn’t say God was our helper. This shows that David knew God as his helper. Yes, He had helped Israel out of many troubles, but David saw that he had a personal helper. He could say God has helped me. When I am in situations and cry “help” then God is near.

I can recount many times God has been my helper. Even when I wasn’t obeying the traffic laws, God helped me avoid serious injury or even death. I had a ’51 Ford and drove it to a youth seminar. I had several other high school friends with me. I was traveling at a high rate of speed, went to pass, and faced a car coming from the other direction. I don’t remember how I got past the truck I was passing and in front of it. I was just there. God was my helper.

I’m sure you can think of many times God has been your helper.

So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” (Hebrews 13:6)
