My Help Comes from the Lord
Self-help books are everywhere. In 2021, in one week alone, over 17 million such books were sold. But what is the BEST self-help book? The one that is the best seller, EVERY YEAR - the Bible! That's exciting. But if it is so popular, why is the world in such a mess? I think one reason is that many people find it hard to give up control. The Bible goes against the grain. Jesus teaches a revolutionary life - one of love, forgiveness, humbleness, kindness. I love the graphics of the movie series about Jesus called "The Chosen" - it depicts a single fish swimming against the herd - one by one, more fish join that one.
He also teaches by example - to rely on His Father in heaven. This whole Psalm is beautiful - describing a God who never sleeps - He is ALWAYS there for you.
I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade on your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life.
The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.
Have a blessed day!
