Daily Verse: “So, we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:6 ESV)
BOETHEO (998): “Is an adjective and is used as a noun in Heb. 13:6 of God as the helper of His saints.”
Helper of His saints.
In the original Greek, helper means God helping us, those who believe and trust in Him. How amazing the thought, the Creator of the world helps us. Amid our pain, God comforts us; in our joys, God rejoices, and in the mundane, God walks with us.
Beginning our fall tennis classes, I chatted with my business partner about my anxieties: conflicts with court time, irritating a resident, not connecting with my students, or, worst of all, the class wouldn’t have fun.
“No one knows the anxieties I have when I’m on the court,” I said.
God offers a solution to my anxiety, His help. But to receive His peace, I must seek Him and receive it. I spent time journaling out my concerns and sharing them with God. Then I shared them with my business partner because she could help me on the court. And peace descended.
Relationships rule life. Developing open communication with God and others will create stronger bonds. Once I shared my coaching anxieties, my partner opened up about hers. Everyone worries; becoming vulnerable allows others to share theirs with you.
Seek God for help today. Ask Him into the trials of your life. Become vulnerable with your Creator as you share the hurts of your heart with Him. Let God into those places you let no one else go. Allow Christ to see the shame you hide. Let God’s love revive your heart as it flows into every nook and crevice.
Let God’s love change you in a world often driven by hate. Forget what others think, care about God’s thoughts towards you, His precious child. Jesus died and rose again, creating a bridge to eternal life with God. Let Him walk with you on the journey. Receive the divine assistance Christ offers.
