There are many wonderful testimonies of people who have experienced the Lord as their help. The Old Testament for example, is filled with kings and common people alike, who were helped of the Lord. King David, King Jehoshaphat, Gideon, Daniel, Joseph, people of Nineveh, Noah… the list would go on.
Moving on, let’s take a look at the second part of why the Lord helps His people: 🙌
They wait on the Lord
Wait on the Lord means patiently hoping in His mercy and His time. Those who wait on theLord will fly like eagles the Word of God says. Isaiah 40:31. David in his psalms says, he waited patiently on the Lord in prayer and He heard him. Psalms 40:1. Patience always pays. Not everyone likes waiting, but those who wait patiently on the Lord will be rewarded. Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield. Psalms 33:20.
No covetousness in them
Being covetous means being greedy. That is, not satisfied with what the Lord has given. Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Hebrews 13:5. Only when we learn to be happy and contented with what we have, can we really proclaim — The Lord is my Helper. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. Hebrews 13:6.
They find their help in God
Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. Psalms 63:7. King David acknowledged the fact that the Lord was his help. He had a heart of gratitude for all that the Lord did for him — in his kingdom and during his ruling period. That’s why he could rejoice in the shadow of His wings. All those who experience the Lord as their help have never been put to shame.
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalms 27:1.
May the Lord help us!
Be blessed! 💕
