Our help

4 years ago

One night my husband was reading from the Daily Light before we went to bed. The Daily Light has morning and evening readings of Bible verses (on a particular theme) from throughout the Bible. That evening's reading was how God is our help. But the last verse jumped out at me! It was this verse, "Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth. (Psalm 124:8) " It was actually the last phrase that got my attention. "...who made heaven and earth."  Wow! The God that is willing to help me is the God who made the heaven and the earth!

When you get on a plane and travel across the ocean to the other side of the world, you get some feeling of how enormous this world is and how small we are. The earth is so huge with all the different countries and the miles and miles of ocean. And what about the sky! I don't know much about stars and planets, but I know there's lots of space up there too!

It gives us a little glimpse of how powerful and awesome God is.

Do you think any of our problems are too difficult for God to solve?

Do you think anything is too hard for God?

If our God could create the heaven and the earth, not to mention everything that is on it, surely he can help us with any problem we have! What an encouragement!
