Lasting Help Comes From God

True help cannot come from our own strength.  It does not come through devices of our making, nor originate from ideas of our initiation.  It comes from a power source not our own.

Real and lasting help in a battle comes only from God.

This is especially true, when the storms we face are dark and ominous.  Onslaughts brought on by unseen dominions and principalities, at work against us because we belong to Christ.

Hallelujah, our God is greater! 

He is a very present help for any need.  His is the kind of help that is more than a mere temporary fix, because the Lord’s help goes beyond our finite understanding of what is really needed or wrong.  He understands the battle for what it is.  He sees to the root source: the real enemy we face.

Are you up against an overwhelming situation?  Is the battle raging?

*Admit that you need God’s help.
*Cry out to the Lord and then trust in the power of His name.

Through God alone, we shall prevail, beloved.  He will not fail us, but will deliver in our time of need.

Then Asa called to the LORD his God and said, “LORD, there is no one besides You to help in the battle between the powerful and those who have no strength; so help us, O LORD our God, for we trust in You, and in Your name have come against this multitude. O LORD, You are our God; let not man prevail against You.
2 Chronicles‬ ‭14‬:‭11 NASB

    Your title says it all Sue.
    We can’t look at anything else for lasting help because only God can give it. When trouble comes I am thankful I can call on Him!
    Hope you are well…..

    I really appreciate that you mention the “true enemy” that is unseen. I’m concerned that in our very post-modern (whatever that is) American church, we have largely gutted the power of the gospel in terms of spiritual warfare. Have you ever read the Handbook of Spiritual Warfare, by Ed Murphy? It’s quite a tome, but beautifully done and very informative. Not that I want to give Satan too much attention, but it’s good to know the enemy in a certain degree. Thanks again. Hope this finds you well!
