HIS PROMISE TO HELP
TEXT: ISAIAH 41:10-14
MEMORY VERSE: “For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee” (ISAIAH 41:13).
King David, the Psalmist knew what it means for God to help an individual. At a tender age, he was anointed king over Israel by Samuel the prophet. King Saul sought to kill him, Absalom his son drove him from the throne. Yet in all these challenges, the help of the Lord continued to follow him. No wonder he wrote, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1).
God has promised to help His children. As a Christian youth, you could face challenges such as academic challenges, delay in getting admission, inability to pay school fees, temptations and persecutions; but the Lord will help you to overcome them and will provide grace and victory over all temptations if you remain steadfast and committed to His will.
A song writer wrote,
“I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus! I cannot bear my burdens alone; I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus! Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.”
Challenges should make us draw closer to God for help, instead of resorting to murmuring or complaining.
QUOTE: The Lord will help you.
CHALLENGE: Take your burden to the Lord.
PRAYER: God, help me to find help in time of need.
