"I will help thee, saith the Lord." --Isaiah 41:14
This morning let us hear the Lord Jesus speak to each one of us: "I will
help thee." "It is but a small thing for Me, thy God, to help
thee. Consider what I have done already. What! not help thee? Why, I bought thee
with My blood. What! not help thee? I have died for thee; and if I have done the
greater, will I not do the less? Help thee! It is the least thing I will
ever do for thee; I have done more, and will do more. Before the world
began I chose thee. I made the covenant for thee. I laid aside My glory and
became a man for thee; I gave up My life for thee; and if I did all this, I will
surely help thee now. In helping thee, I am giving thee what I have bought for
thee already. If thou hadst need of a thousand times as much help, I would give
it thee; thou requirest little compared with what I am ready to give. 'Tis much
for thee to need, but it is nothing for me to bestow. 'Help thee?' Fear
not! If there were an ant at the door of thy granary asking for help, it would
not ruin thee to give him a handful of thy wheat; and thou art nothing but a
tiny insect at the door of My all-sufficiency. 'I will help thee.'"
O my soul, is not this enough? Dost thou need more strength than the
omnipotence of the United Trinity? Dost thou want more wisdom than exists in the
Father, more love than displays itself in the Son, or more power than is
manifest in the influences of the Spirit? Bring hither thine empty pitcher!
Surely this well will fill it. Haste, gather up thy wants, and bring them
here--thine emptiness, thy woes, thy needs. Behold, this river of God is full
for thy supply; what canst thou desire beside? Go forth, my soul, in this thy
might. The Eternal God is thine helper!
"Fear not, I am with thee, oh, be not dismay'd!
I, I am thy God, and will still give thee aid."
