“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”(Psalm 46:1)
Look at this scripture again, EVER-PRESENT, this means ‘He is always present whenever you need Him’. God is always with us (Emmanuel); He is present at all times, continually, perpetually, throughout all time. In your day of trouble, He promises to be a help to you. How is He your help? “Help” means different things to different people. That is because “help” is specific to your need. Little wonder Matthew 7 says
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Are you facing trouble or adversity? Know that God is with you. Look to Him for help. Trust that He has the answer, and that He is working things out in your favour. As you continue to believe Him and follow His direction in 2019, He will lead you in the way that you should go. He will comfort you, revive you, restore you and bless you! He will be your ever-present help because He is forever faithful to His Word. You will never go down before help arrives.
A Prayer for Today
“My EVER-PRESENT, thank You for being always there for me. I trust today that You are with me, that You are comforting me and restoring my soul. I lift my eyes to You this day. Help me to follow Your commands and honour You as You direct my steps in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
