Psalm 121:2  My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

We all need assistance from time to time.  There are physical and spiritual task that we just cannot accomplish alone.  An extra hand is always a blessing.  I can recall many times over the years being engulfed with some type project or job and soon becoming overwhelmed.  It is easy for us to “bite off more than we can chew”.  It is in these times we must rely on a friend.  As a pastor, I must rely on others.  In the beginning of my ministry I attempted to do it all myself.  I soon realized that I needed help.  I have always been the type person to just jump in the deep end and get it done.  My motto has always been “whatever it takes, just get it done”.  This type mind frame can quickly get you in a bind.  A friend at the right time can be a huge blessing.  As the ministry has grown, I now realize that a ministry is not a ministry without other people willing to serve the Lord along side you.  We can accomplish much together.  Our verse for today reminds us of the next level of help.  It is the Lord’s help.  There are things that friends can assist us with, but then there are the areas that only God can be our help.  He is our all sufficient help!  Without the Lord, we would be in a 24-7 bind.  He is our true help.  He is our great provider!  Whatever our need might be, He can provide.  There are many times along this road that we need mental help.  Only the Lord can provide mental stableness.  So many people of our day have turned to pharmaceutical and illegal terms to attempt to settle their mental state.  My friend, the Lord has the perfect antidote for our mental stability.  The Lord is the perfect and most sufficient help.  He can and does provide for us in our needs.  I never seize to be amazed at how the Lord can show up and make ends meet.  He can multiply better than all.  Notice our verse.  The Psalmist reminds us that our God is The God.  Our helping Lord is the one who spoke the Heaven and Earth into existence.  If He is that sovereign in His works then He can meet whatever need we may have.  Whether we need assistance in our physical health, financially, mentally or even spiritually, He is our help.  What a peace we can live in if we would only rely on Him.  He is our sufficient help in time of need.  Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Amen!  The Lord is our true help.  He and only He can effectively meet our every need.  Dear friend, you too can live in great peace if you would only lean upon the help of the one who created Heaven and Earth.  Amen.

Philippians 3:13  Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

So many Christians allow their past sins and situations to hold them back from what they could be doing for the Lord.  It is almost as if they use the scars of their life as an excuse to be excused from serving the Lord at full capacity.  Paul addresses this very issue in our verse for today.  First and foremost, he makes it clear that his position in the ministry is not by his own merit.  He makes it clear that his place in the family of God is not of his own works, but of the Lord.  He said; “I count not myself to have apprehended”.  And then he makes mention of one important thing.  This thing is important because it is the key to full service unto the Lord.  Without this one thing we will halfway serve the Lord.  Without this one thing we will get to the end of our life and have so many regrets.  I have stood by and listened to so many saints of God that were in their last chapter of life with much regret.  This regret was that they had held back and not served the Lord to their fullest ability.  Why?  Because they allowed the past to control the future.  Dear friend, do not allow what is under the blood redemption of Christ to limit your service to the Lord.  Go for God!  Go with God!  Jump in and give Him your life.  We must fully surrender in order to see what He has for our life.  So many Christians use the excuse of earthly work to get them out of doing eternal work.  Dear friend, you do realize that your earthly work is a blessing of the Lord, right??  Be careful not to serve the blessing more than the Blesser.  We all have vital earthly responsibilities, but we must refuse to allow them to get between us and our eternal work.  Who controls the decisions of your life?  You do!  We make the decisions of our time.  We must be good stewards of the manifold grace of God.  We must know when to turn the phone off.  We must know when to walk off and leave it.  We must know when and how and who to say “no” too.  If many continue the route they are on, they will arrive in the last chapter of life with much regret.  We all have regret from past sin.  But we must not allow that sin to control our commitment and submission to Him.  Yes, I do realize that sometimes our past sin disqualifies us for certain leadership positions, but there are so many more places and positions we can commit too.  Disqualifications are listed clearly in the Word of God, so don’t make up your own rules!  My friend, stop allowing the past to control your future!  Serve the Lord to the fullest of your ability.  Give Him your life.  By the way, our life is because of Him and is in Him.  Give Him the glory!  Amen.

Psalm 14:1  The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.    

Here is a verse that sends chills down my spine.  I have been in church my entire life.  I had the great privilege of being raised up in a Christian home.  But even though this was a great privilege and even though it protected me from much evil and vileness, it does not give me direct access to God and eternal life in His Heaven.  I am extremely grateful to the Lord and my parents for my protected life.  But a clean, moral life is not what gives us salvation.  Salvation is through the redeeming blood of the Lord Jesus.  There was a day in my life that Holy Ghost conviction flooded my lost soul.  It was that moment that I surrendered to the drawing power of the Spirit of God.  It was that moment that I became a born again child of God!  Hallelujah!  The Lord Jesus makes it very clear in John 3:3 that we must be born again in order to inherit salvation of the Lord.  Acts 4:12 is very clear that the Lord Jesus is the only acceptable way to God.  In John 14:6 Jesus Himself assures us that there is no other way.  We live in a day to where man attempts to be his own god and he is convinced that he has the ability to control his own life after death.  Oh dear friend, you had better have arrangements made about life after death before your death.  Once death takes control of this body, we lose total control.  One millisecond after this body dies, eternity now controls our never dying soul.  Our verse reminds us of the sad condition of the majority of today’s population.  Many say with their mouth that they believe in God, but with their heart they are lost and doomed to Hell.  We can say all we wish with our mouth, but our heart tells the truth of our eternal condition.  My friend, what is the condition of your heart??  Are you redeemed by the shed blood of the Lord Jesus?  Do you recall the moment conviction touched your soul and you said yes to the Spirit of God?  Mouth talk proves nothing.  But heart belief seals our saved soul!  John 6:44  No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.  Romans 10:8-10 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;  9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  Dear friend, don’t be a fool in your heart!  Amen.

Psalm 130:5  I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.

The longer we live here on earth the more home sick we become.  We that are truly saved have a yearning for our eternal home.  I realize the Psalmist probably was not referring to the rapture of the Church when he penned down this verse, but we can most definitely make a spiritual application with it.  My soul doth wait on the Lord Jesus to step out on the clouds He created and sound the home going trumpet of the redeemed.  Dear friend, we should awake every morning listening and looking for our ride home.  He’s coming!  Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.  Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.  So as we wait on the Lord we must stay encouraged.  There are many ways to accomplish this.  We need Spirit filled worship services.  We must strive in fellowship to encourage one another.  1Thessalonians 5:11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.  But the last part of our text reminds us of a powerful and sure way to keep ourselves stirred up about our home-going.  “In his word do I hope”.  Amen!  The Word of God contains powerful proof that the Lord is coming to receive us home and that He is worthy to be praised, followed and served.  His Word lays out the plan of God so perfectly and plainly.  Dear friend, let’s take advantage of every opportunity we have to encourage one another of His soon coming and our soon going.  Stay in the Word brothers and sisters!  It contains the powerful, unchanging truth of God’s sovereign plan.  Amen!!

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
