(“Every Day!” Author unknown, 1872)
“Having obtained help from God–I continue until this day.” Acts 26:22
This is the testimony of the great apostle of the Gentiles. Many were the perils to which he was exposed, and many were the hardships which he endured–but he was borne up and carried through them all by the help of God his Savior.
Just so, He who was the Helper of the great apostle–is the Helper of the feeblest child in His family, or the weakest lamb in His flock. He is your Helper, beloved Christian reader! He who has redeemed you, not with corruptible things, such as silver and gold, but with His precious blood–will assuredly afford you seasonable aid. Look then to Him, in the discharge of your daily duties–for all needful wisdom and strength.
In domestic cares and trials–remember that your Helper is near.
In every hour of weakness and sorrow–cast yourself on His sustaining grace.
In the hour of your extremity, when human help avails nothing–then cling to Him, and listen to Him as He says,
“Do not be afraid, for I am with you!
Do not be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with My victorious right hand!” Isaiah 41:10
May this be your daily prayer, “Hold me up–and I shall be safe!” Psalm 119:117
