As My Helper

I love the part of Psalm 119 where the priest writes, “Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me free. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? The Lord is on my side as my helper; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.” 

I note several things. First, we might enjoy this image of God on our side as Helper as we go about our days. How powerful! How comforting! Second, when we feel fear, we can remember this image of God “on our side.” It makes me think of having a moment-by-moment advocate. Finally, I think about letting God live out this comfort through me to other people. Might I act as a helper to others? Might I help others in distress and lead them to God’s answer?

As we start the day, we can think of this image of God on our side.
