July 16, 2019: SOAP #3512: Isaiah 25-28; Hebrews 13A

Scripture:  Hebrews (NIV) 13:5 Keep your lives free fromthe love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” 6 So we say withconfidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man doto me?”

Observation:   What alogical question.  If God is my helper"ifGod has promised to never leave me"if God has promised never to forsake me"ifthat is really true, then what can man do to me? 

The All-knowing, All-powerful, All-present God who created the universe and whosent His Son to die for me"yes, that is the God who is my helper and is alwayswith me!   Nothing can happen to mewithout His oversight.  And if He hasallowed something to happen to me, He is surely able to help me throughit!   As He promised, He is able to makeall things work together for good because I love Him and am called according toHis purpose! (Romans 8:28)

Application:   Myworry can change nothing.  His presencecan change everything!  Nothing canhappen to me without His knowledge and permission.   

Prayer:  Heavenly Father, Your love amazes me.  Thank you for watching out for me.  Thank you for being my helper.  Indeed, with you on my side, what can man doto me?  Amen
