Dependable God

God is our protection and source of strength. He is always ready to help us in times of trouble. (Psalm 46:1, ERV)

In the face of trouble, God is your protection and source of strength. He is always ready to help. Let’s consider how human help contrast God’s help so that we build our Faith on whichever is reliable:

  • Humans Help
    • Depending on your country of residence, it takes up-to 10 minutes or more for emergency services to attend to you.
    • The fastest, maybe 5 minutes.
    • Often humans help is limited to their knowledge about your situation and their resources…including time.
    • Humans disappoint. Therefore don’t expect too much regardless of their promise(s).
    • Have you heard “I wish I could come around, or do this and that for you, BUT I’m unable because of…” before?
    • Humans can’t be 100% loyal
    • …, including any other you can think of.
  • God’s Help
    • He is Dependable
      • One simple PROVE;
        • He hasn’t given up on you yet. Despite all your (uncountable) disobedience, YOU ARE ALIVE today; You can breath, see, and read this post. Many would have loved to see this day but here you are, ALIVE and STRONG.
      • This is enough reason to prove that He is READY to HELP you.
      • “He who did not spare [even] His own Son, but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:32, AMP)
      • Wouldn’t you rather cast all your cares on Him?
    • He is also Faithful.
      • He watches over His word to perform – Jeremiah 1:12.
      • The Lord says, “Can a woman forget her baby? Can she forget the child who came from her body? Even if she can forget her children, I cannot forget you.” (Isaiah 49:15, ERV Emphasis added)
  • Conclusion:
    • It’s obvious to us, who are God’s children, that God can be trusted to keep His Word concerning our lives and well-being.
    • Therefore let us [with privilege] approach the throne of grace [that is, the throne of God’s gracious favor] with confidence and without fear, so that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find [His amazing] grace to help in time of need [an appropriate blessing, coming just at the right moment]. (Hebrews 4:16, AMP Emphasis added)
