“I look to the hills, where does my help come from? My Helcp comes from the LORD, Maker of Heaven and Earth. ” 

 The word, “HELP,” literally means,”To run to support, to relieve, or help when in difficulty or want or distress. To assist and deliver from suffering, to succor a besieged city… One upon hearing a cry for help, RUNS TO GIVE AID TO ASSIST OR TO SUCCOR.” It is “the assistance offered to meet a need.”

“…where does my help come? My Help- comes from the LORD who hears my cry to Him and runs to aid me , to assist me. The Psalmist recounts…

1.- Testimony of Past Help;
PSALM 63:6-7- ‘When I Remember You on my bed, I meditate on YOU in the night watches. For YOU have been my HELP. And in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy. My soul clings to You. Your right hand upholds me.”

2. -Testimony To Present Trust;

PSALM 70:5 – But I am afflicted and needy; Hasten to me, O God You are my HELP { The One I cry to and you Hear and come running to assist me, to aid me} and My DELIVERER, O LORD, do not delay.”

3. – Promise For The Afflicted;

Psalm 72:11-12 – “And let the kings bow down before Him. All nations serve Him. For He will deliver the needy WHEN HE CRIES FOR HELP, The Afflicted also, and him who has NO HELPER.”-

Do you feel like you have “no helper?”Maybe humanly, no,“BUT GOD…” He sees you. CRY TO HIM, He is your Helper! He hears, and as we have seen the word means God RUNS TO AID, ASSIST YOU- GOD IS YOUR HELPER.’

4. – Help Has A  Name -“The LORD.”

PSALM 146:5- “How BLESSED is he whose HELP is the God of  Jacob, whose HOPE is in the LORD God.”

If you never knew troubles, you would never know His power to help. His urgency to meet you with deliverence from or grace to sustain you. You too like the pslamist, speak to yourself, testify to others of PAST HELP, PRESENT TRUST, PROMISE FOR THE AFFLCITED, HELP ‘S NAME- “THE LORD!”
