5 Bible Verses – Where Do I Find Help?

22 Jul

tranquility-2

When Kate Motaung said the word prompt this week was help, I immediately thought, help what am I going to write about.  I went scripture because that is where I go when I need help, strength, advice and encouragement.  Actually, the Bible is the only place we should go for help.

Do you need help today?  Are you going through trials, studying for exams, discouraged, grieving, struggling with marriage, weight loss, children and so many other things than here  are some of my favorite scriptures on help.

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1 (KJV)  

I really wanted to see if I could understand this verse better by going to Dictionary.com and looking up the definitions of words or what we seldom refer to as verse mapping:

  • Refuge – a place of shelter, protection or safety
  • Strength – the quality or state of being strong; bodily or muscular power; vigor
  • Very– acutely
  • Present – at this time; at hand, immediate
  • Help – assist, aid
  • Trouble – to disturb the mental calm and contentment of;  worry; distress; agitate

He is my shelter, my safety, my muscle at all times – always, immediately in times of distress or worry.”

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”  Isaiah 41:10 (KJV)

I love making verses personal so for the one above I would write, so do not fear Debbie, for I am with you; do not be dismayed Debbie, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you Debbie and help you; I will uphold you Debbie with my righteous right hand.

“My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth .”  Psalm 121:2 (KJV)

“Behold, God is mine helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul. ” Psalm 54:4 (KJV)

Joining Kate today and #FMF family writing for five minutes on the word help.  Come join us.
