“Yea, I will help thee”
HELP FROM WITHOUT
Yesterday’s promise secured us strength for what we have
to do, but this guarantees us aid in cases where we
cannot act alone. The Lord says, “I will help thee.”
Strength within is supplemented by help without.
God can raise us up allies in our warfare if so it seems
good in His sight; and even if He does not send us human
assistance, He himself will be at our side, and this is
better still. “Our August Ally” is better than legions
of mortal helpers.
His help is timely: He is a very present help in time of
trouble. His help is very wise: He knows how to give
each man help meet and fit for him. His help is most
effectual, though vain is the help of man. His help is
more than help, for He bears all the burden, and
supplies all the need.
“The Lord is my helper, I will not fear what man can do
unto me. Because He has already been our help, we feel
confidence in Him for the present and the future. Our
prayer is, “Lord, be thou my helper”; our experience is,
“The Spirit also helpeth our infirmities; our
expectation is, “I will lift up mine eyes unto the
hills, whence cometh my help”;
and our song soon will be,
“Thou, Lord, hast helped me.”
