The Lord, Our Helper
Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; who keeps truth for ever.
How blessed, how happy, How fortunate we are, who’s help comes from the God of Jacob, who is also the God of Abraham and Isaac. He is the God who appeared to Moses, who lead Israel out of Egypt and into the Promised Land. Happy are those who trust Him, for they shall never be disappointed, ashamed, or confused. He is not only our present help for today; He is our hope for eternity.
He is the Lord! He is always there; He never sleeps; and His promise to us is that He will never leave us nor forsake us. Because of His presence, we have hope while others are in despair. We know a happiness that is beyond description, beyond comparison, beyond imagination. How blessed are we to know that our God is our present help and our eternal hope. Wise is He who puts his trust in the Creator. He who made the heavens and the earth makes us fit for heaven. He who is the creator of all life has given us eternal life through the Lord Jesus Christ!
Thank you, Lord, for all you have done for me. Thank you for the joy of my salvation and for the promise of eternity with you forever. In Jesus’ name, amen.
