Psalms — Psalm 41 – Humbly Receive Help!

Day 2588: Look up, your redemption draweth nigh! says Jesus!

Scripture: How blessed is he who considers the helpless; the Lord will deliver him in a day of trouble. The Lord will protect him and keep him alive, and he shall be called blessed upon the earth; and do not give him over to the desire of his enemies. The Lord will sustain him upon his sickbed; in his illness, You restore him to health.

But You, O Lord, be gracious to me and raise me up, that I may repay them. As for me, You uphold me in my integrity, and You set me in Your presence forever. Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and Amen.  Excerpts from Psalm 41

Thoughts/questions: So many love to help! But when others try to help them, they resist. The Psalmist states that this relationship of help should be circular, not linear. The Lord delivers those (must need help if they have been delivered) who have helped the helpless!

And sometimes God uses others in our lives to partner with Him as He helps and delivers us thru them. We MUST be humble and accept that help! If not, the question then would be, “What if those you desire to help had that same attitude and would not let you help them?” God’s plan – help others when they are in need, and allow them to help you when your need arises!

Election note? Did the platform of the winning party regarding Israel impact the U.S. elections?

Suggested prayer: Father God, help me to always look out for the needs of the helpless and to be able to receive help when needed . . .
