God said in Gen 2:18, Â Â Â Â â€œit is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for himâ€. Everything that is missing in yourÂ life, God will help to put in place for you. Because God knows all things, He knows what is best for you. He will help you fulfill yourÂ destiny. Adam was not the one that identified the need; God identified it and did something about it. Before this year will be over God will help you out of the place of hopelessness. Donâ€™t quit or surrender, help is on its way. There are more glorious paths ahead of you. Your best days are still ahead.
Despite all that David passed through in life, he never gave up. He had multiple reasons to quit but instead he pressed on knowing full well that God will fulfill His plan for his life. He did not trust in his own ability or in men because he knew that the arm of flesh will fail him, for by strength shall no man prevail. He always trusted God to help him out in every situation. Read what he said in Ps. 121:1-3. â€œI will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumberâ€. When he confronted goliath, he trusted in Godâ€™s help for victory and God helped him to defeat goliath. He was constantly looking up to God for help.
No matter the goliath confronting you right now in the form of huge debts, marital challenges, children hooked in drugs, joblessness etc, know that the goliath is and or are surmountable. It is time to look up to God who created the heavens and the earth to help you. Abraham and Sarah his wife were old and the womb of Sarah was dead. There was no hope of the promised child coming forth. Their situation was very hard. It appeared as if there was no way out. But then God said in Gen. 18:14, â€œIs there anything too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a sonâ€. God was saying then and He is saying to you now that nothing is impossible with Him. He helped Sarah to conceive and gave her strength to deliver at old age. Know that what God did for Sarah, He can and will do for you. He is not a respecter of persons. He will help you to conceive and deliver the long awaited promise and blessing. Believe me, God will help you.
Heb 13:6 says, â€œso that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do to meâ€. Remember what goliath was doing to the children of Isreal? He was putting fear into them to demoralize them and make them defenseless so that he can defeat them. But then the devil is a liar. God has not given to you the spirit of fear, but the Spirit of power, of love and of a sound mind. The threat of goliath appeared real only to those that believe in it. You can be like David and declare against every challenge confronting you that the Lord is your helper.
Do you feel lonely, afraid, burned out, cheated, confused, depressed, hateful, overwhelmed, purposeless, tired, weak and tormented? Well know that there is the God that created the heavens and the earth. He wants to help you overcome all of these and more. He has made you an overcomer and more than conqueror. He causes you to triumph always through His son Jesus Christ and by the power of His Holy Spirit. Of a truth, He will help you in every area of your life. Remember, He said, He will never leave you nor forsake you till the end of the age.
God cannot be with you and not help you. Turn to Him that can help you. Stop trusting in chariots and horses like pharaoh did and ended up drowning in the red sea and start trusting in the name of the Lord, God Almighty that can never fail, and see Him help you to divide every red sea in your life so that you can have access to the better side of life. Trust Him, God can never disappoint you. GodÂ bless and help our great nation Nigeria.
