Your Helper - June 30, 2016

God says, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you!” That’s the promise God gave Joshua. And he gives you the same promise. The writer of Hebrews quoted those same words in Hebrews 13:5-6 and then concluded by saying, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can anyone do to me?”

What can anyone do to me? You know the answers. Lie to me. Deceive me. Bully me. But the Scripture asks a different question. The Greek word for helper in this passage means “to shout, to run.” When you need help, God runs with a shout, “I’m coming!” He never leaves you. Ever! Since God is strong, you will be strong. Since he is able, you will be able. Since he has no limits, you have no limits.

The Lord is my helper! What can man do to me?

From God is With You Every Day
