Psalm 93 & 94: God Is My Help
Verse of the Day: (94:17) Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
1. God Is My Holiness (93:1-5)
Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever. (93:5)
The mark of God is holiness. This is the sole desire of God that He makes man in His own image, so that he be holy as He is holy, and to acknowledge and worship Him in spirit and in truth. (John 4:21-24) Adam and Eve, the first man and woman created by God, failed to be holy and obedient to Him, when they disobeyed Him by eating the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. (Genesis 3) Indeed, God’s love and blessings are only to those who are holy before His holiness, and who acknowledge and worship Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as their Saviour and Lord. (2 Corinthians 7:1-3)
2. God Is My Heart (94:1-15)
But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it. (94:15)
When our hearts are after God’s heart, we will do what He desires us to do. We will commit our hurt and humiliation, and grief and grievances to God, and fully trust and patiently wait upon Him. Let us not take things into our own hands, but truly know and understand that vengeance belongs to God, and He shall eventually judge and punish the wicked for all their evil deeds. Indeed, God loves us, and He is testing the faith and obedience of His children, and He chastises us as a father will discipline his children, so that we will be holy and obedient before Him. (Hebrews 12:1-17) In fact, God is longsuffering, and He is patiently waiting for all to repent their sins, and believe and trust in Him, so that they will have His eternal heaven to gain, and a devil’s hell to shun. When we truly have God’s pure heart, and pray to Him, and seek His holiness, we shall spiritually see Him. What a blessed day it will be when we shall see Jesus, our Saviour, and all our loved ones who had gone ahead of us in His pearly heaven! (Matthew 5:1-12)
3. God Is My Help (94:16-23)
But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge. (94:22)
Many times we are overwhelmed by our unending problems, and it seems that God is silent, and far away from us. Nevertheless, let us continue to pray and seek God’s help, as He is our Defence amid the devil’s attacks, our Rock amid sinking sand of sins, and our Refuge in time of storms, and He shall help, deliver and comfort us amid all our trials, troubles and tribulations. Let us fully trust God that He shall judge and punish the wicked, and cast them into fiery hell, and nothing, not even distress, persecution, famine, peril or even Covid-19 or death can separate us from His great love for us. (Romans 8:18-39)
Prayer of the Day:
Dearest God, thank You that You are my Help when I am hopeless and helpless.
