"Help!"

 

“Help!”

 

Help us, God our Savior, for the glory of Your Name; deliver us and forgive our sins for Your Name Sake.     Psalm 79:9

 

This Psalm of Asaph, is a plea for God’s HELP.  In verse eight, he says: “May Your MERCY come QUICKLY to meet us, for we  are in DESPERATE NEED.”   Now, to a lot of us, we can identify with the URGENT plea of our Psalmist.  We are MORE than READY for COVID-19 to be over with.  However, if you look at verse nine closely, you will see that the Psalmist has reached the REALIZATION that it’s NOT the sins of PAST generations that may be holding up the HELP that he DESPERATELY NEEDS, but it may be HIS own sins that are delaying God’s intervention.

 

I can’t help, but wonder if that is not the case with what we, as a nation, are experiencing with the virus, and its LINGERING effects.  Is the Almighty God, waiting for this nation, as a whole, to come to Him in REPENTANCE of its SINS, mainly the REJECTION of His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, as its Savior and Lord? 

 

Remember, Psalm 66:18, tells us: “If I cherish sin in my HEART, the LORD would NOT listen to me.”  Well, Asaph says: “HELP US,” for the glory of Your name; DELIVER us and FORGIVE OUR SINS.  He realizes that it may be HIS SINS that are hindering God’s divine intervention.  And he knows that there is POWER in the NAME of JESUS.  So, when you combine REPENTANCE with the MIGHTY NAME of JESUS, God will DELIVER and FORGIVE our sins.  Could it be YOUR SINS that are hindering your PRAYERS for HELP, to be answered?

 

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, this might be your LAST opportunity to do so.  It’s possible that Jesus will return at ANY TIME.  And maybe our MERCIFUL God is delaying, in order to give EVERYONE, one LAST opportunity to ESCAPE HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE, and to RECEIVE HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.  In order to do that, YOU MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  Then BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that JESUS died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be assured that He WILL hear your cry for HELP and will DELIVER and FORGIVE.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
