Psalm 94:17–19 (ESV): "17 If the Lord had not been my help, my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence. 18 When I thought, "My foot slips," your steadfast love, O Lord, held me up. 19 When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul."
Life never turns out like we think it will because we are so not in control. Thankfully God is in control and He provides help to us in all aspects of our lives. His love is always enough no matter what we are going through. Rejoice today that He is your help and sing with joy that His steadfast love endures forever!
The psalmist speaks of the struggle of seeing the wicked succeeding in their sin and yet no one around them says a word. He too was slipping into that state of acceptance by way of silence. He thanked God for not allowing him to fall into that trap. God helped him by giving him the boldness he needed to overcome.
God cares about what you care about! We are called to cast our cares upon Him for He cares for us. It doesn't matter what the care is! He loves us and wants to work on our behalf! He is our help! What is it you need help with today? Look to the Lord who loves you beyond comprehension. He will speak the truth and give you the boldness and faith you need to get over the hurdles that you face. He is our help...He loves us! Let's depend on Him to get us through.
Father, You are absolutely amazing to us. Thank You for helping us in so many ways. Help us to never look to another for You alone are what we need. Let us be driven into Your arms with all our cares this day. Encourage our hearts as we get the help we need for the things we face. You are enough and we trust You for the answers we need in Jesus' name, amen.
