12-8-2016 God Hears “Help!”
“Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in the LORD his God, Who made heaven and earth, The sea, and all that is in them; Who keeps truth forever, Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry. The LORD gives freedom to the prisoners” (Psalm 146:5-7 NKJV). God gives “help,” a word meaning “to run at a cry.” The Creator God is the source of life, truth, justice, food, and freedom. In the Apostle Paul’s vision “A man of Macedonia stood and pleaded with him, saying, ‘Come over to Macedonia and help us.’ Now after he had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go to Macedonia, concluding that the Lord had called us to preach the gospel to them” (Acts 16:9-10 NKJV). God hears cries of “Help!” for either physical or spiritual needs.
