“Behold, God is mine helper…” Psalm 54:4
Prayer does not have to be hard. Previously, I published an article titled, “God, I need Help” and revisiting that article, I think, ain’t that the truth.
The simplicity of our hearts crying out to our God, is really all it takes. There is no reason to have some convoluted plan to try to “persuade” God (if that’s the way we want to think of it) into hearing and responding to our prayers. As our Heavenly Father, not only does He hear, but He personally concerns Himself with every area of our lives.
Isn’t that a wonderful thought?
But, He doesn’t stop there.
God also gives us more help than we could ever imagine because we are more important to Him than we could ever imagine. And I think this is where many allow their faith or lack thereof to be swayed like a pendulum, swinging between belief and unbelief of just how much God cares for each of us individually.
Swing and sway no more, my friend. Today, let us just focus on trusting God enough to simply ask and believe?
That is really all it boils down to, a simple ask with a simple belief.
David, in the above psalm, after praying, “Save me, O God, by thy name… Hear my prayer, O God” (Psalm 54:1-2), simply says, “God is mine helper.” Do you see the confidence in that statement? Do you see how personally he knew that God was for Him? When others were after him and still others sold him out, David remained assured in his faith that God would see him through every trial and work out what he wasn’t able to. David knew, through past experiences, just to believe God in the midst of whatever he may be facing.
“God is mine helper.” Is that your declaration today? If it’s not, it can be. Don’t overcomplicate your needs, your prayers, and the ability of your God to help. Simply ask. Simply remain confident. Simply believe. And just hold on and let God work it out. God knows what He’s doing.
God is for us more than we could ever imagine. “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). “So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me” (Hebrews 13:6).
