God Is Our Help
"Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth." Psalm 124:8. The Psalmist sees certain perils. The Psalmist understands the threat that these perils have against us. Were it not for the Lord, we would be overwhelmed. The storms seek to engulf us. Evil men rail against us. Dangers flow over us. We stand because of our help. We are insufficient, and oftentimes, powerless. But, we have help. We must not despair. We must never give up. We have a refuge that will not fail us. The Lord, the Creator, is our stay. Could we have a greater companion that the Lord who has made the heaven and earth? The answer sounds through time. No. A thousand times, No. The Lord spoke and it came to pass. What power has the Lord. The Lord cannot be overthrown. Those whom He seeks to help cannot be defeated. The perils of this life have no power against the Creator of heaven and earth. We cannot be swallowed up. The snare of our enemies is broken. We escape, and the Lord is blessed. Blessed be the Creator, our help.
