Where does my help come from?
I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
There is no problem too big for God
Now a man who was lame from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts. When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. (Acts 3:2–3)
We are indeed all living in a difficult world. Some people experienced broken relationships, while others suffered from sickness, just like the man who was lame from birth mentioned above. The Bible tells us that because of sin, we are all under God’s wrath because we are unable to walk upright.
We are consumed by your anger and terrified by your indignation. You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence. (Psalm 90:7–8)
Though in fear and brokenness, we tried our best to improve our lives. But no matter how hard we try, we are still stuck in this broken world; everything we do will be either in vain or harming one another. Even though we got healed, we are still haunted by fear. Fear of being sick again, being deserted again. We constantly look for happiness, but nothing can last long.
There is no problem too small for God
O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand. (Isaiah 64:8)
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. (Psalms 139:13-16)
In Jewish tradition, lame persons are considered unclean and not allowed to go inside the temple. Outcast and lamed beggars stayed near the temple because they could have more opportunities to receive alms. However, when Peter and John walked by this beggar, they had no money to give.
