Today, the Lord is my helper.

Are you tired? Do you face deadlines? Are you behind? Maybe you are facing a problem that feels overwhelming. You may be a business person, university student, minister, or mom with small children. Regardless, there are moments in life that are just over the top. The following was published earlier but today I want to repeat them again. Perhaps you, like me, need to hear these affirmations today.

Today, I feel somewhat stressed and overwhelmed. I woke up in the middle of the night feeling very small as I began to think about decisions to be made, the unknown, and the future. I then read Hebrews 13:5b-6.

“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?”

In front of me is a memo pad. I wrote the following a few minutes ago:

Today, the Lord is my helper — I am free to give my stress, anxiety, and concerns to God.

Today, the Lord is my helper — I am free to not be stressed over the future.

Today, the Lord is my helper — I am free to relax and work hard.

Today, the Lord is my helper — I am free to be myself and not be overly concerned with pleasing others.

Today, the Lord is my helper — I am free to focus on pleasing Him instead of trying to make others happy.

Today, the Lord is my helper — I am free to be fully present with other people.

Today, the Lord is my helper — I am free to live as a balanced person. I don’t have to apologize for taking time to laugh, play, sleep, or live as a balanced human being.

Today, the Lord is my helper — I am free to say “No” or “Yes” or “I don’t know.”

Today, the Lord is my helper — I am free to enjoy the love of God, my wife, my two girls, and many other people.

I suspect you relate to this. I suspect that as you read this post, you can think of your own anxiety and worry. I am so very thankful that he literally is “my helper.” Now isn’t THAT a wonderful gift.
