Your help cometh from the Lord. There’s nothing too hard for Him to handle; and nothing is impossible for Him to do. God, who is omnipotent and omnipresent, will walk you through WHATEVER situation you find yourself in. God already knows every aspect of the matter; after all, He’s omniscient. No foe can withstand His might; if God is for you, then please tell me, who do you think can come against you? (See Romans 8:31.)
We are being monitored!
Hell can’t make a move against us without heaven knowing about it. Just the fact that God knows what’s going on in our lives—should be consoling. With that said, why should our faith bow under the thought help isn’t coming? Our heavenly Father knows we need His support. Things might get rough waiting; but He’s in control—focus on the One in charge of scheduling. No demon has any say-so over us when we are walking in obedience to the Word; God gives us HIS peace, HIS comfort, along with HIS warring angels to battle on our behalf. (See Psalm 91:11,12.) God is not moved by the enemy—so why should we?
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. 2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth (Psalm 121:1,2).
Let me share the latest revelation I received from the Holy Spirit about how worrying and fear can hinder the very help we’re waiting for. The Lord led me to read Exodus 17:9-13; when the Israelites had to fight the Amalek army, they prevailed as long as Moses held up the rod in his hands. But when he got tired and relaxed his arms, the Amalek’s prevailed. So, Aaron and Hur stood on each side of Moses, and held his arms up; as a result, the Israelites won.
From that passage of scripture, here’s how it relates to my life: As long as I keep my faith in God, and do what He instructs me to do—He will command His angels to fight for me. But, when I start to worry, and allow fear to overtake me, it’s as if I “lowered my arms.” Why should the angels continue to fight when I walked away from the battle? That illustration gave me a Holy Ghost slap of reality. (See James 1:6,7.)
Is your faith faithful to God?
In Daniel 10:1-13, Daniel’s prayer request was received in heaven the first day he prayed. But it was delayed for twenty-one days because the angel of God had to fight his way through the evil spirit of Persia. Nevertheless, as Daniel waited for his answer to come, he devotedly continued fasting and praying. To put it another way, Daniel never lowered his arms; therefore, the angel had reason to continue fighting.
By faith know, there’s a lot of activity happening in the spiritual realm that we in the natural know nothing about. The angels are fighting on the behalf of every prayer that is and was prayed in God’s will. Stay in position to receive because:
Your help cometh!
Side note: No matter how many times we’ve read old familiar Bible stories, we must keep reading them. Those stories are packed with eye-opening revelation that we can use in our current circumstances—right NOW. I told you how reading about Moses spoke straight to my situation. The Word of God is Alive!
