OUR HELP IS IN THE NAME OF THE LORD
After Moses died, the kings of the Hittite, the Amorite, the Canaanite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite, on hearing about the death of Moses gathered together to fight with Joshua and Israel with one accord (Joshua 9:1-2).
Those kings thought that Moses was the key man in Israel, and that without Moses, both Joshua and the Israelites were doomed. Though Moses was instrumental to the victories and successes of the Israelites, those kings did not realise that it was not all about Moses, but because there was a God in Israel giving them victories. God had told Joshua that He would be with him as He was with Moses.
2 Corinthians 2:14 says, "Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place." Men like David knew God was the "secret" of their success in life; he said, "For by You I can run against a troop, by my God I can leap over a wall. It is God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect." Psalm 18:29, 32.
God is our secret and the reason for our success. Hallelujah! What makes us shine? It is God! Thank God for your skills, talents, connections, and passion for whatever you do, but always remember, If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us, then they would have swallowed us alive, and the waters would have overwhelmed us! Our help is in the name of the LORD who made heaven and earth! (Psalm 124)
