HELPLESS, HELPER, HELP
Helpless, Helper, Help!
I have purposely arranged the title to tell the progression
from man's standpoint. It does not reveal the order of occurance,
as we will see. Here is a text that will set the order: "I
WILL LIFT UP MINE EYES UNTO THE HILLS,FROM WHENCE COMETH MY HELP.
MY HELP COMETH FROM THE LORD, WHICH MADE HEAVEN AND EARTH. HE WILL
NOT SUFFER THY FOOT TO BE MOVED: HE THAT KEEPETH THEE WILL NOT
SLUMBER.", Psalms 121:1-3.
(A) The helper is the "Lord". He is majestic. The maker of
heaven and earth. He, then, is our creator. He is powerful over
all things, whether creature or other creations. He CAN help!
He made it - - - He can enable it! He is 'Omnipotent': (unlimited
power,all powerful, Almighty)."I am the Almighty God; . . ."
(B) The 'helpless' are we creatures, with bodies, souls, and
spirits. We have sinned, and are therefore lost and "undone"
like how Isaiah felt when he saw the Lord upon His throne, Isaiah
6:5. Even as saved ones, our infrastructure is marred by the
"old man" which struggles against the "new man", Ephesians
4:22-24.To be overcomers we must have the WORD OF GOD
before us; the Spirit of God guiding within us, and the "help" of
God always:"Behold, God is my helper, . . ." David said, Psalms
(C) Yes, the Lord is my help in being saved, and proceeding
to live and serve Him, Psalms 30:10, 33:20. The apostle Paul
who so vigorously labored for the cause of Christ, said: "Having
there obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing
both to small and great , . . ", Acts 26:20. Let us carry on
fellow saints: ". . . for he hath said, I will never leave thee,
nor forsake thee.", Hebrews 13:5. DDH.
