NUGGETS FROM LAST SUNDAY'S MESSAGE Preacher: Deacon Emmanuel Ebeh Bible reading: Hebrews 4:1-16 Title: The Lord our help
In Isaiah 41:10-14, God said 4 times that He will help you. This is a God that doesn't speak so much, which means He really will help you.
Whatever the issue might be, know that God will help you. Examples of people God helped in the bible:
In Genesis 18, when God decided to help Abraham and Sarah they laughed because they were of age. But despite their unbelief and because the Lord had chosen to help them, He gave them a son, Isaac.
We can see from Numbers 22:5-6, that when God decides to help NOTHING can stop Him. In other words, even your enemies can't stop Him.
In 2 Kings 4:8-32 the Shunammite woman was hospitable to Elisha and he prayed for her and she had a child. Even though this child died, Elisha raised him from death. From this example, and also in the case of Lazarus who was raised from death by Jesus, we can see that even death cannot stop Him from helping us.
Who will God help?
Those that walk uprightly, even in their heart. (Psalm 15:1-5)
Those who don't despise Him (Psalm 15:4)
Those who cry unto Him (1 Chronicles 4:10, in the case of Peter in Matthew 14)
Those who fear Him
Those who will honour Him (Psalm 50:15)
Finally, as powerful as God is, if you're living a sinful life, because His eyes cannot behold iniquity in any form, He cannot help you. (read Micah 3:4, Isaiah 59:1)
