God Helps Me

Sometimes we face “low” times in our lives. These are times when we have physical, emotional, financial or spiritual problems.
The writer of Psalm 116 was facing a “low” time in his life. “Death’s ropes were around me. The grave was closing in on me. I was worried and afraid” (verse 3). But the writer knew where he could find help. “Then I called on the Lord’s name. I said, ‘Lord, save me!’ The Lord is good and merciful; our God is so kind. The Lord takes care of helpless people. I was without help, and he saved me” (verses 4-6).
Wow! God gives us peace and lifts us up when we are sad and discouraged. He blesses us and helps us find answers to our problems. When God does this, what should we do? We should thank Him and praise Him.
Think about how God has helped you with your problems. Thank Him and then tell someone how God has protected and blessed you.
