Psalm 108:12-13

Psalm 108:12-13

Give us help from trouble, For the help of man is useless. Through God we will do valiantly, For it is He who shall tread down our enemies.

Psalm 108:12-13

Trouble is a natural consequence of living in this sinful world. During the pandemic, we’ve certainly had our shares of problems and we didn’t know what to do. One thing that didn’t work was relying on the knowledge and help of men. Every person involved had a different opinion and, at times, it seemed the cure was worse than the virus. David plainly said the help of man is useless.

To make it through troubles, we need the Lord. With the Lord, we will do valiantly. It’s from the Lord we get our strength. Philippians 4:13 says, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Psalm 118:8 reads, It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

As we go forward, may we learn the lesson of this verse and let God have the reins in our lives.

Relying on God for my strength,

Pastor Ron Kitchell
