When one is in need, they often seek the provisional assistance for another and when assistance is given, they are said to have been helped. But what is help? Is it one’s provisions or their presence that defines ‘Help’? From the Bible, we learn that God is our helper. H.E.L.P is His Ever Loving Presence. The Psalmist asks, “Where does my help come from?” and answers “My help comes from the LORD.” It is not only His provisions but His Presence that helps us.
Jesus said, “Lo, I am with you always!”. In other words, His being with us (Presence) is a promise that we can count on. Jesus is our Helper. His Ever Loving Presence (H.E.L.P) is promised and assured.
Psalm 121:1-2 (KJV)
1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
Matthew 28:18-20 (KJV)
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
