If the Lord Had Not ...

Our children will wake up in the middle of the night, petrified, and realize no one present to comfort them. Our youngest will brave the walk across the house and down the stairs to cuddle with mommy and daddy. Either way he is looking for someone to ride this out with him and comfort him for a restful night. At some point in our lives, we have to examine our fears, otherwise it poses the ability to grow and multiply. Deuteronomy 33:26 says, “There is none like God, O Jeshurun, who rides through the heavens to your help, through the skies in his majesty."

Moses is painting a picture of God's ability to be the eternal Refuge and the saving Help for the people of Israel. God's shows His sovereign rule and willingness to help His people. When stress, worry, pain, hurt, trials, and tribulations come about, instead of leaving you to fend for yourself, God desires to ride it out with you. Except you must go to Him like a child. When we retreat to God like an adult we tend to have a certain amount of pride which causes us to rationalize our situation(s), therefore, preventing total surrendering.

When our son comes running across the house, he knows we will respond. He calls for us boldly and loudly in need without any care. He looks for his refuge and strength. Lastly, in Psalm 94:17 after the psalmist had been comforted, he writes, If the Lord had not been my help, my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence."

Do not let your fears silence your way to Victory ... turn to the Rock.
