I Am The LORD Who Helps
"I am the one who helps you, declares the LORD." Isaiah 41:14
This morning let us hear the Lord Jesus speaking to each one of us: I will help you.
It is but a small thing for Me, your God, to help you. Consider what I have done already. What! Not help you? Why, I bought you with My blood. What! Not help you? I have died for you; and if I have done the greater, will I not do the less? Help you! It is the least thing I will ever do for you; I have done more, and will do more.
Before the world began I chose you. I made the covenant for you. I laid aside My glory and became a man for you; I gave up My life for you; and if I did all this, I will surely help you now. In helping you, I am giving you what I have bought for you already. If you had need of a thousand times as much help, I would give it to you; you require little compared with what I am ready to give. It is much for you to need, and perhaps difficult for you to ask, but it is nothing for me to bestow. Help you? Fear not! Here you stand at the door of My all-sufficiency. I will help you. It is my heart’s desire to help you.
O my soul, is this not enough? Do you need more strength than the omnipotence of Jehovah? Do you want more wisdom than exists in the Father, more love than displays itself in the Son, or more power than is manifest in the influences of the Spirit? Bring here your empty pitcher, bring here your empty heart and spirit! Surely this well shall fill it. Hurry, gather up your wants, and bring them here--your emptiness, your woes, your needs. Behold, this river of God is full for your supply; what else can you desire?
Go forth, my soul, in confidence, in faith, in obedience, in trust. The Eternal God is your helper!
Fear not, I am with you, oh, be not dismayed! I am your God, and will still give you aid.
