IT PROVOKES HELP FROM ABOVE
“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)
Without help from above, we are helpless on the earth. The enemy is fierce. He knows his time is short, so he is out against the children of God with full force. The wickedness on the earth is intense, but we have access to help from heaven to overcome them all through prayers. That is why the Bible says in Psalm 127:1:
“Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchmen waketh but in vain.”
Every blessing and accomplishment in life comes as a result of the helps of God. Read what Paul said in Acts 26:22 from your Bible.
He was preaching the same message as other apostles in his time, but he got better results because he had the help of God. The Psalmist, though a great man of war who never Lost a battle, knew this secret. In Psalm 60:11-12, he prayed:
“Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.”
The Bible also tells us the secret of King Uzziah’s successful reign (read it in 2 Chronicles 26:1, 5, 7, from your Bible)
Prayer is not just telling God your needs, because He already knows them (Matt. 6:32). It is getting Him to intervene in your situation on the basis of His Word. God is your heavenly Father and He knows your needs, but you require His help to overcome the enemy.
Therefore, what you do in prayer is to take your accuser to the court room of heaven for judgement. Once you are justified, the help of God is released to you. When God becomes your Helper, you enjoy ceaseless breakthroughs and stand out among your peers.
God is committed to sending help from above when you call on Him. He gives you this assurance in Isaiah 41:10-13 ( read it from your Bible).
The Psalmist said in Psalm 56:9:
“When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.”
