Where does my help come from? … I choose the Lord!

WHERE DOES MY HELP COME FROMThere’s always some kind of situation, circumstance, issue or crisis that needs attention – that demands a remedy!  When those things surface and “raise their ugly head” who… or what… do we depend upon?  Where do we go for help?  Those are the questions I found myself asking (of myself!) this morning during my Bible reading… Oh, I was reading Psalms 146…

Here’s how the Psalm begins…

“Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O MY soul!  I will praise the Lord as long as I live!  I will sing praises to my God while I have my being!  PUT NOT YOUR TRUST IN PRINCES, IN A SON OF MAN, IN WHOM THERE IS NO SALVATION…

But on the other hand, here is Who we should put our trust and confidence in…

“BLESSED IS HE WHOSE HELP IS THE GOD OF JACOB, WHOSE HOPE IS IN THE LORD HIS GOD…  Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, Who keeps faith forever;  Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry!

And here are just some of the things He does…

The Lord sets the prisoners free; He opens the eyes of the blind! The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down; the Lord loves the righteous!  The Lord watches over the sojourners; He upholds the widow and the fatherless, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin!  The Lord will reign forever, Your God, to all generations! Praise the Lord!

I just love Psalm 146!  I don’t know about you, but I’m going to trust the Lord, NOT a mere human “in whom there is no salvation!”
