8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
Today’s Inspiration: Our help is in the name of the Lord who made heaven and earth. Psalm 124:8. As He is the shepherd of our soul no matter how severe our sickness or our problems, we cannot be moved.
Micah 7:7 he said he will look to the Lord the God of his salvation. To wait is yachal in hebrew. To wait means patiently hope, tarry and trust in anticipation. Noah has to wait for seven days since the time he sent out the dove before he knew that he and his family is safe. Genesis 8:10.
Wait for the Lord means wait steadfastly and expectantly for His mercy, salvation and His rescue and while waiting, don’t take matters into your own hands. Human effort cannot save or turn mess into a miracle. Only God has the power and authority to topple your difficulties that are beyond human effort. Let the Lord be your light that brings you out of darkness into His marvellous light. The Lord is good to all and His tender mercies are all over His works. Psalm 145:9.
Talking about hearts, we need to examine daily our hearts before the Lord before we are quick to agree our disagree. We need to be more discerning to know God’s heart. God is not irritated by many amen. On the contrary, He loves it because by saying ‘Amen’ we agree to God’s word. If you are irritated, you do not know God’s heart. We are to bear with one another. Where is God’s commandment to love one another if we are so easily irritated by people saying Amen to God’s message because to them it’s disturbing their work. How does the unsaved see us if Christians strived and have such attitude towards another Christian? This is something God’s people need to reflect if they have such attitude.
We need to obey God’s commandment to love one another and to bear with one another for we never know the heart of people. Only God does. God knows every heart. Your heart will never see you to the end. Only one who is transformed by God’s heart and steadfastly and earnestly pursue God’s heart will see you to the end. God will never allow anyone to take His glory to anyone. You can never finish the race without God’s heart and fulfilling His will to finish the work. John 4:34.
