Psalm 70:5 – You are my helper and my Saviour. (NLT)
"Call 911! Call 911!" Eight-year-old Levi was scrambling to get help for his mother, Julia, who had slipped and fallen on the wet tile floor in their kitchen. Gasping from the pain as her knee buckled under her, she instructed Levi and his seven-year-old sister, Brooke, to call their dad at work.
Rushing home, he soon had them all in the car and on the way to the emergency room. After X-rays, Julia was given a cast, crutches, and an appointment to see an orthopaedist in four days. Those crutches soon became her helper, because without them she could not move around at all.
Just like Levi wanted to call 911 for help, we can cry out to God to save us from our sins and become our Saviour. When we call to Him, He responds as our Helper, Protector, and Friend. We find Him sufficient for all our needs. He alone can fill our lives with joy.
Julia could not move from one place to another without her crutches to help, and we cannot grow in our spiritual life without the grace, mercy, and peace that God as our Helper supplies.
Prayer: Lord, You are our Helper, our Healer, our Friend, and our Saviour. Thank You that we can call upon You at all times for anything, and that You are always ready to minister to us. We love You. Amen.
