Have you been in trouble lately? I was in trouble recently when my left knee became swollen due to some autoimmune response to some medicine I had been given, and I could not stand and walk because of the pain I had to endure. I became aware of the importance and need of present help when my maid who is very sensitive to our needs, and who would be standing unobtrusively by, just gives me a hand to help me stand or even be my crutch by lending me her arm to lean upon when I walk say from my car into my home. When my knee buckled she would lend me the strength of her youth and just help me get to my destination whether upstairs or downstairs. She has been my very present help in trouble at the right time, providing sufficient help to keep me going safely and securely without falling.
Our God is more than human help. He knows even before we ask for He is Omniscient. He is Omnipotent and renders us help no matter how impossible. He is Omnipresent, always there when we call. Indeed He is our refuge in these dangerous times. He is our strength when the enemy comes in like a flood and He is our present help, always there, able, enduring and faithful to the end. Praise the Lord.
If you have not tasted that He is good you should for He IS good and how loving He is. Praise the Lord again and again for His wondrous care every moment of the day.Every moment of the day My Father cares for me Every moment of the day My heart from fear is free He who sees the sparrow fall Will hear my call Every moment of the day My Heavenly Father watches over me.
Indeed God is my very present help in trouble even when it comes upon us without warning and from any direction.
Bless His Holy Name.
