Good morning! I hope you have had a wonderful night’s rest. The morning here is bright and lovely. As I anticipate a busy day, I am pausing to write to you about God’s help to us. I mentioned previously that whenever I have seen chipmunks in the area, they usually scurry into the forest and hide. Well, the one above purposely ran towards me. Perhaps this was this chipmunk’s way of asking me for help.
Do you need help? Are you in distress? God is here for you. Are you overwhelmed? God is here for you? Do you need wisdom? Again, God is here for you. There is no matter too “small” that we cannot bring to His attention. Because we may be going through a difficult time is no indication of God’s displeasure towards us as believers.
When King David’s son turned on him and caused David to flee, he penned these words in the book of Psalm that we can gain encouragement and wisdom from.
Psalm 3 The Holy Bible NKJV ( New King James Version -near the middle )
1 LORD, how they have increased who trouble me!
Many are they who rise up against me.
2 Many are they who say of me,
“There is no help for him in God.” Selah
3 But You, O LORD, are a shield for me,
My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
4 I cried to the LORD with my voice,
And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah
5 I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the LORD sustained me.
Dear Father, may you bless us and encourage us in the fact that you are for us, not against us. I pray that you strengthen and give us your calm assurance that enables us to overcome the obstacles that cause us to become anxious and distressed. May our faces shine brightly with your love today, to be a blessing to others in need of you, in Jesus’ name, amen
