God is a very present help in time of trouble (Ps. 46:1). He is the solution to both known and unknown troubles. He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. He is Omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresent. That means He is all knowing, all powerful and everywhere at the same time. What a wonderful God you have at your disposal. I prophesy that this God will help you in this remaining three months mightily.
Psalm 60:9-12 says, “Who will bring me into the strong city? Who will lead me into Edom? Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? And thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies? Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
Through God we shall do valiantly: for He it is that shall tread down our enemies”. Only God can thread down your enemies. Remember, He is all powerful, all knowing and everywhere at the same time. He is limitless. He knows all about the situation and knows how to bring about the solution. Jesus told His disciples to feed the multitudes but the disciples said it was not possible because they were in the desert and the amount of money in their disposal was nothing to write home about. Yet Jesus said to them to go and look even though He already knows what to do.
Finally they came to Him and said all they could get was five loaves of bread and two fish and concluded by saying but then what are these among so many. Jesus response was simple. He took them and gave thanks and told the people to sit down and feed them. At the end there were twelve baskets of leftovers from the little that was placed in the hands of Jesus. Do you need help? No matter the trouble, He is more than willing to help you. He promised to make a way of escape out of the challenges and He surely will.
Again, I repeat Ps. 60:11-12. It says, give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man. Through God we shall do valiantly: for He it is that shall tread down our enemies. In 2 Chron. 20, the enemies came against Jehoshaphat to battle. The enemies were more in numbers, stronger and well prepared for battle.
It seems as though there was no way out for them. Fear came upon the people. Jehoshaphat did not call upon his army. He looked up to God for help because vain is the help of man. He trusted in God to help them out. He looked up to the hills from whence cometh his help. He refused to trust in chariot and horses. God in response to Jehoshaphat’s confidence in Him was to help him out. He told Jehoshaphat where the enemies camped and followed them to the battle after assuring them that the battle is the Lord’s and not their own.
All Jehoshaphat did was to seek God’s face and began to sing praises. This doesn’t make sense but then the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, they are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. The bible says that as they sang God set ambushment in the camp of the enemies and they began to kill themselves until they were all dead leaving behind multiple blessings for Jehoshaphat and his people to possess.
What do you trust on? Your job, bank account balance, contacts, business, parents etc. These can only offer you a temporary help that will eventually fail. Put your trust absolutely in God, for He is the one that can thread down all your enemies just as He did for Jehoshaphat. I release grace upon you now to receive help from God. God bless and help our great nation Nigeria.
Have you given your life to Jesus? If not, please pray this prayer. Father, I come to you as I am. I invite Jesus into my life to be my personal Lord and Saviour. Wash me cleanse with the blood of Jesus and empower me with the power of your Holy Spirit. Thank you Father for saving my soul and making me your child.
