Verse Of The Day : The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped… Psalms 28:7

Thought Of The Day : Those who choose to stay in faith with God never regrets their decisions.

LISTEN : Help from above is humanity’s ultimate help. As a matter of fact, no human help can truly lift anyone from the dungeon who God has marked ‘miserable and rejected.’ Real and durable help is help from above. It is help from above that triggers help from man. Beloved, to experience the help of God, you must acknowledge His existence and exercise faith in Him. God cannot help you until you believe that He has the capacity to help you. That is, you must have faith in Him. The Psalmist said,

“The LORD is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusted in him, and I am helped…”

Psalms 28:7

He believes that God is his strength and shield. That is, God is his source of strength and protection. Even when he is weak and worn out by troubles of life, his faith in God could bring him back on his feet. In the same way, God strengthens us when we feed on His words; He protects us when we lean on Him. The Bible says,

But they that wait upon the LORD
shall renew their strength; they shall mount up
with wings as eagles; they shall run,
and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31

Those who choose to stay in faith with God never regrets their decision. My dear, trust in God and He’ll help you. He can change your story no matter how ugly it looks. Nothing can be out of control when God is in charge (Mark 4:37-39). No matter the circumstances, if you have faith in God and do what you should do, you will laugh in the end. The Bible says,

“… weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.

Psalms 30:5

So, no matter the situation, don’t take your eyes off God, rather, put your trust in Him and He would surely help you. Remember, there is help for you from above. Be wise!

What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Trust in God and you’ll not be put to shame.
2. When things are out of your control, never forget that they’re under God’s control.
3. Never give up on life, rather be focused and press on until you break through.
4. Discover and follow God’s plans for your life and you’ll not end up frustrated.

Prayer : Dear LORD, I acknowledged that, you are my help and strength. I trust that no matter the situations, you will help me out, in Jesus ’ name, amen.

A Word Of Blessing : Today, I speak on your life; receive divine help for your troubles. Anything that is out of control in your life is brought under control now, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Reflection : When God comes to help anyone, He brings things that are out of our control under His control.

Quote : “Faith triggers divine intervention. For God will not fail to help anyone who trusts in Him.”
