Great is Thy Faithfulness, O! Lord, You are New every morning. Thank You Father for Greater is He that is me than he that is in the world. I blessed Your Holy Name. I return all the glory to You. Be Thou exalted forever in Jesus Name.
Almighty Father, You are our Shield and our Buckler. You are the Rock of my salvation. Whosoever that hits you breaks into pieces, thank You for being my defense.
Beloved, we are here again to worship and praise Him Who Alone is worthy of our praise. Put on your dancing shoes and come before Him this morning. Today being the last Wednesday of the month, let us come appreciating, let us come rejoicing in the Holy Ghost, let us come before Him recounting all His goodness that He showered upon us all through the month.
It is indeed a glorious month. I am blessed and you are blessed, I believed. So with a grateful heart, let us approach His Throne where only the Twelve Elders are permitted to worship the King of kings and the Lord of lords. The only Lion of the tribe of Judea. Hear us as we pray today in Jesus Name. Amen!
Beloved, the prayer theme before us is what you and I use regularly without regarding it as prayer, but from the message before us it is a powerful one that move God to action as soon it is uttered.
Yes, peradventure there is still needs before you and you don’t know what to do, just shoot this prayer to heaven and see what will happen. Even the faintest cry of it is heard by the Holy One of Israel.
Come as we invite God to help us especially in hour of helplessness, when all has failed, and human help is far and remote. Call on God, he will surely be your “HELPER”.
“Help, Lord.” Psalm 12:1
The prayer itself is remarkable, for it is short, but seasonable, sententious, and suggestive. David mourned the fewness of faithful men, and therefore lifted up his heart in supplication—when the creature failed, he flew to the Creator. He evidently felt his own weakness, or he would not have cried for help; but at the same time he intended honestly to exert himself for the cause of truth, for the word “help” is inapplicable where we ourselves do nothing.
There is much of directness, clearness of perception, and distinctness of utterance in this petition of two words; much more, indeed, than in the long rambling outpourings of certain professors. The Psalmist runs straight-forward to his God, with a well-considered prayer; he knows what he is seeking, and where to seek it. Lord, teach us to pray in the same blessed manner.
The occasions for the use of this prayer are frequent. In providential afflictions how suitable it is for tried believers who find all helpers failing them. Students, in doctrinal difficulties, may often obtain aid by lifting up this cry of “Help, Lord,” to the Holy Spirit, the great Teacher. Spiritual warriors in inward conflicts may send to the throne for reinforcements, and this will be a model for their request.
Workers in heavenly labour may thus obtain grace in time of need. Seeking sinners, in doubts and alarms, may offer up the same weighty supplication; in fact, in all these cases, times, and places, this will serve the turn of needy souls. “Help, Lord,” will suit us living and dying, suffering or labouring, rejoicing or sorrowing.
In Him our help is found, let us not be slack to cry to Him. The answer to the prayer is certain, if it be sincerely offered through Jesus. The Lord’s character assures us that He will not leave His people; His relationship as Father and Husband guarantee us His aid; His gift of Jesus is a pledge of every good thing; and His sure promise stands, “Fear not, I WILL HELP THEE.”
Had the Lord said fear not to you, than fear not, for He surely help Thee. in the cleft He will safe guard you. in that deep, He will arise for you. In that moment of depression, our God is fit for the occasion. When your beloved ones has abandoned you, wept not He is right beside you. I was once there, so I know what I am writing to you. You may not agree with me due the pains and challenging you are face with right now but never mind, He is right there with you.
Just look up from yourself, look away from your situation and you will see Jesus smiling at you his hand is stretched out to you, can you accepting the invite and run into His outstretched hand and you will be safe forever.
Your story will change and you will sing a new song which the Lord will give you. Amen! The children of Israel sang a new song, yours will not be different for you are also the heritage of the Father.
“Then Israel sang this song, Spring up, O well; sing ye unto it.” Numbers 21:17
Famous was the well of Beer in the wilderness, because it was the subject of a promise: “That is the well whereof the Lord spake unto Moses, Gather the people together, and I will give them water.” The people needed water, and it was promised by their gracious God. We need fresh supplies of heavenly grace, and in the covenant the Lord has pledged Himself to give all we require.
The well next became the cause of a song. Before the water gushed forth, cheerful faith prompted the people to sing; and as they saw the crystal fount bubbling up, the music grew yet more joyous. In like manner, we who believe the promise of God should rejoice in the prospect of divine revivals in our souls, and as we experience them our holy joy should overflow.
Are we thirsting? Let us not murmur, but sing. Spiritual thirst is bitter to bear, but we need not bear it—the promise indicates a well; let us be of good heart, and look for it. Moreover, the well was the centre of prayer. “Spring up, O well.” What God has engaged to give, we must enquire after, or we manifest that we have neither desire nor faith.
This evening let us ask that the Scripture we have read, and our devotional exercises, may not be an empty formality, but a channel of grace to our souls. O that God the Holy Spirit would work in us with all His mighty power, filling us with all the fulness of God.
Lastly, the well was the object of effort. “The nobles of the people digged it with their staves.” The Lord would have us active in obtaining grace. Our staves are ill adapted for digging in the sand, but we must use them to the utmost of our ability. Prayer must not be neglected; the assembling of ourselves together must not be forsaken; ordinances must not be slighted. The Lord will give us His peace most plenteously, but not in a way of idleness.
Let us, then, bestir ourselves to seek Him in whom are all our fresh springs. Are you ready to that do that now? He that promise, is Faithful, He will surely answer you. Make most use of today and ask God for help and you will be among the elect that will sing a new song as your glory shines bright and brighter each day. No more darkness on your path, no more despair on your ways for the Lord will perfect all that concerns you.
The Lord will grant all your heart desires but not without your cooperation, dear beloved. Again, Prayer must not be neglected; the assembling of ourselves together must not be forsaken; ordinances must not be slighted. The Lord will give us His peace most plenteously, but not in a way of idleness.
Here is my song for today:
The Lord reigns x2
Let the heaven rejoice, x2
Let the earth be glad,
And the sea resound.
The Lord God reigns.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
