“Moses discovered, when he led the Israelites to the shores of the Promised Land, that the Lord God was the One alongside him all the way, helping him do what he could not do by his own ability. So is the Lord your Helper, too.”
Behold, God is my helper; the Lord is the upholder of my life
Moses was already an old man when he experienced the Lord’s call to lead the Israelites out of Egyptian captivity. He was watching over his father-in-law’s sheep one day when the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a burning bush. “I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring my people out of Egypt,” he said. Moses was flabbergasted at the call of God for such an auspicious task. He resisted the call of God by saying, “Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue. Oh, my Lord, please send someone else.” In reply, God said, “I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.” Moses obeyed the call of God and, with God’s help, went on to become one of the greatest leaders and prophets Israel was to ever know.
Do you sense the call of God on your life but don’t feel qualified to take it on? Are you facing a new task at work or a new role in a new job but feel intimidated by the learning curve? Perhaps you are working hard at school, college or university but are battling to take it all in. Whatever you may be facing today; whatever is intimidating you; whatever it is you feel unqualified to do, as Moses did, rest assured in the knowledge that the Lord your God is your helper. He who is omniscient and omnipotent will be your strength and your help in your time of need.
Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit after his return to the Father. He said, “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever.” If you know Jesus as Lord and Saviour, the Holy Spirit is in you and with you in every scope of life. The Greek word used to describe him in the New Testament is paraclete, which means advocate or counsellor, the one alongside. Moses discovered, when he led the Israelites to the shores of the Promised Land, that the Lord God was the One alongside him all the way, helping him do what he could not do by his own ability. So is the Lord your Helper, too.
