Who Helps the Helper?
“The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.” (Psalm 28:7, King James Version)
I am a person that really enjoys helping people. I find myself, in all types of situations, being a support to others: family, friends, church members, co-workers, the list goes on and on. However, sometimes helping others can be very exhausting, and leave you feeling like you have nothing left to give. You find yourself looking for support. So, who helps the helper? The Lord does!
He is strong and mighty, a strong tower that we can run to. He is our shield, our rest, and our support. When we feel “all helped out,” He takes over and gives us the strength to go further. When we are weak, He is strong. From the very beginning, He was my help. Every time I assisted or helped someone, He helped me. The Lord strengthened me. So, as we are called to help others in our day-to-day comings and goings, let’s rejoice in Him and sing praises to His name. All our help comes from the Lord.
LORD, when I am weak from helping your people, I ask for your strength to carry me along the way. Be with me and guide me in every situation. I know my help comes from You, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
