Help Dawns on us

Help Dawns on us

Psalm 31:22 “In my alarm I said, ‘I am cut off from your sight!’ Yet you heard my cry for mercy when I called to you for help.”

[What seems to be an impossible situation for us is changed when we remember that you are there, Lord, that you are acting behind the scenes and will do what is best.

I think of the times we were threatened with expulsion from the country we were working in, but you heard our cry for mercy, Lord, and kept us there for many years more, in spite of the opposition and the plans of high ranking men.

And you often give us the privilege of going by faith for a while, believing you when we have no outward evidence, and thereby giving you greater glory before all.

As it says in Psalm 46,  “God is in the midst of her (then Jerusalem, now in us); she shall not be moved: God shall help her, at break of day,” that is after we have waited the whole night! “The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.”

Help us to trust you daily, Lord, obeying your call to: “Sacrifice thank offerings to God, fulfill your vows to the Most High, and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me” (Ps. 50:14,15).]
