Calling 911 for God’s Help

I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2

There are some days when I fell like David when he was looking for help. Today we see upheaval in our nation and in our world and sometimes it makes me feel like a drowning man grasping for straws. I look to the foundations I have counted on all my life and things are being shaken – but God’s help remains sure and solid. Last Sunday we listened to a missionary couple who had lived through the Nepal earthquakes and they recounted the devastation wrought by the two major earthquakes and the 604 aftershocks that continue till today. At their orphanage they appoint one person each night to stay awake and keep watch with a basin of water as their alarm clock. If the water begins to move back and forth they know the earth is moving again and they ring a bell to awaken the others.

In the same way today God is watching over us. Though all around us is unstable, He remains firm and unchanging. Though we lie down and sleep He remains vigilant watching over His children. We can trust and know with a calm heart that are lives are firmly held in the hands of the God who created those moving mountains.

Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Psalm 46:2

God has a help line open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. To get an answer we only need to get on our knees and call Him up, and He will answer!

I know Jesus is on that mainline
Tell Him what you want
Jesus is on that mainline
Tell Him what you want
Jesus is on that mainline
Tell Him what you want
Call Him up and tell Him what you want

Jesus on the mainline
