Memorise: My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:12
Read: Psalm 121:1-4
1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
Bible in one year: 1st Kings 7, Ezekiel 16:59-17:10


1. The reason why many people pray without getting answers is because their prayers are actually directed to men instead of God.
2. Today, many people seeking for jobs, contracts, spouses or admission into academic institutions prefer to ask for help from those they believe can assist them instead of going to the true source of help: God.
3. The truth about receiving help from man is that men are most unreliable, limited in resources and ability and can be swayed by situations and circumstances. Where do you channel your requests to?
4. In 2nd Kings 6:26, a woman in dire need cried to the king for help, and the king responded to her cry with these words: “….If the LORD do not help thee, whence shall I help thee? Out of the barnfloor, or out of the winepress?” 2nd Kings 6:27. This king recognised that God is the true source of help we all need. No wonder David, in today’s Bible reading, said that he would look up to the source of his help: God. 
5. Who is your helper? To whom do you turn or run for help in time of need?
6. God is the true Helper because He is the All-Sufficient God. He is the creator and owner of the earth and everything in it (Psalm 24:1). He has all the ability, knowledge and power, and so He can do anything, answer any question and solve all problems.
7. Ecclesiastes 5:8 says He is higher than everyone and everything, and so He is above all. Psalm 91:1 calls Him the Most High.
8. He is also the most influential, because the mention of His Name compels everything and everyone else to bow to Him (Philippians 2:9-11).
9. He is so powerful that with just a simple statement, the toughest of requests is granted (Psalm 33:8-9).
10. His word is final on any issue; hence, you do not need to accept any negative verdict from any other source (Lamentations 3:37).
11. He stands as the Universal Judge who can upturn any judgement as He pleases in favour of those He loves.
12. It is a great privilege to have access to this God, table requests before Him and receive answers to our requests.
13. If you find it difficult to make your requests known to God, it is obvious that you do not know Him, or you are proud.
14. From now on, make it a habit to praise and worship Him and thereafter make your requests known to the true Helper (Philippians 4:6). He will help you today.


When help comes from above it is timely, accurate and perfect. It cannot be stopped or hindered because the most high God is the helper here. God is the only true Helper and we must learn to turn to Him only for whatever help we need. He will answer us as we do in Jesus name. Pastor E.A Adeboye is a great blessing to our generation. We pray as he turns many to righteousness greater grace is released to him in Jesus name.

Prayer Point
Spend an hour thanking God for how He has helped you thus far, and then ask for His help on every difficult situation you are confronted with.
1 Through the love of God our Saviour,
all will be well.
Free and changeless is his favour,
all, all is well.
Precious is the blood that healed us,
perfect is the grace that sealed us,
strong the hand stretched forth to shield us,
all must be well.
2 Though we pass through tribulation,
all will be well.
Ours is such a full salvation,
all, all is well.
Happy, still in God confiding,
fruitful, if in Christ abiding,
holy, through the Spirit’s guiding,
all must be well.
3 We expect a bright tomorrow,
all will be well.
Faith can sing through days of sorrow,
‘All, all is well.’
On our Father’s love relying,
Jesus every need supplying,
in our living, in our dying,
all must be well.
