The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool:but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. John 5:7-8.
Help is a relative term, many in need of help do not know what they need. They need help to know what they need. Even when help comes, they cannot recognize their helper. The man sick of palsy at the pool is a typical example. The help he desired was from someone, possibly family and friends. The hands of man is limited help, the hands of God grants unlimited help. This man needed healing, to be well & whole again. Bitterness and complaining robbed him of these for 38 years. The coming of the Angel was sure, the water shall be turned. He looked for the turning to have his turn, when the healer came, he was still waiting for his turn. He was fixated on the water and the angel, not the healer.
Your helper is within not without; ask, knock and seek help of the lord.
“Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”Hebrews 4:14,16.
Grace and mercy are available and overwhelms all your needs. Grace is specific, mercy fixes particular needs; given generously in advance. None shall miss the helper and the helps that come with him. The lord is your helper; Covenant help is his franchise. The cry of mercy is never denied. God is all you need to have all your needs met. Grace and mercy is all you require to need no more. It is never in short supply. This is the help of God for your greatness in life. This is the connection to endless help from above. Accelerate, increase, multiply; become the first among the best, by his help. Grace and mercy are available for you and your helper is in you.
Strange helps await you at every junction of your life.
“Through the tender mercy of our God;whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”Luke 1:78-79.
