Who do you turn to in times of trouble?
“I call to God Most High, to the God who does everything for me. He sends his help from heaven and saves me. He disgraces the one who is harassing me. Selah God sends his mercy and his truth.” Psalm 57: 2 – 3 (GOD’S WORD)
At one point in life or the other, we all meet situations that tend to weigh us down and as such require help. At such times, who do you go for help?
As humans, we fix our minds first on those whom who feel have the substance or whatever it takes to help. But this is obviously not the best way to seek help. I say this because even the people we trust so much to help us also need help!
Still under Saul’s pursuit David wrote saying: “I call to God, the Most High, to God, who supplies my every need.”(verse 2 GOOD NEWS BIBLE). Who did David say he would call unto? He said who would call out to God who supplies his every need. Note he never said that he would call out to man, but to God who ALWAYS supplies his EVERY need. I do not know of any man that can supply every need of another all the time. But God does supply our needs (every need) all the time.
Then verse 3 reads: “He will answer from heaven and save; he will defeat my oppressors. God will show me his constant love and faithfulness.” David was certain that if he called out to God, God would answer him and give him victory over his enemies. He was so sure because God had done so many times — “You will send help from heaven and save me, but you will bring trouble on my attackers. You are faithful, and can be trusted.” (CONTEMPORARY ENGLISH VERSION)
David said that not only would God send help to him from heaven, he also said God would bring trouble on his attackers! Praise the LORD! Then he said something that separates God from man. “…You are faithful and can be trusted.”
What man is there that is as faithful and can be trusted as God? Absolutely none! If no one is as faithful as God is, thus, cannot be trusted as God can be, who should you then go for help?
