Psalm 121:1-2 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
The introduction of God in Genesis describes Him as the All-Sufficient One. That name ELOHIM describes one that has all that He needed to survive and exist. One that needed no external support from anything, anywhere, anyhow, anybody whatsoever, whoever, wherever, however. He is complete and perfect in Himself.
This same God made a man that would be like Him in a measure, that man was designed to have dominion over all that Elohim had created. That man ADAM was literally in-charge of the earth and commandeers the earth and its fullness. Though was made from the elements of the earth, but was superior to the earth. He didn’t need to depend on the earth to survive, but needed ONLY God for survival.
But this man, Adam, fell. He fell from a place of dominance to a place of dependency. He not only now needed the earth to survive, but also sought covering from the elements of the earth.
Man was before the fall wired to seek help from only one source, Heaven. Man was higher and mightier than the earth so couldn’t seek help from the lesser, but man after the fall has been re-configured to seek help from the earth and its elements.
Genesis 3:7 “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.”
The help provided by the earth is temporal and does not have capacity to sustain man. And that’s why we cannot live today on the food eaten yesterday, we must need eat another one. Yet we see that Elijah ate a food that kept him walking for 40days without any other support.
Jesus shows us what it means to be sustained in the Spirit when He said, Whosoever drinketh of this water(earthly) shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water(heavenly) that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” John 4:13-14.
We naturally look at people around us for help anytime we are in need of one, and we are quick to blame people for not helping us each time we seem to need them. We are suppose to look up for our help, not down.
The easiest thing to do when looking for something is to look at the floor, around and within, we do not consider looking up to heavens for help. The natural man does not remember to look up to God for help, it’s a life of self-dependence. Many resort to work hard so they would not need anybody’s help, some others become so humble so as to get help from people when they needed one. And we almost do not care to look up to God for sustenance.
If we desire a lasting eternal help, one that will be devoid of complains and regrets, it’s time we looked up for one. This is where our help should and would come from. Everytime we experience lack, it is because we didn’t look up to God, but considering our earthly sources.
I make bold to tell you that a man that seeks help from God only cannot be stranded or frustrated. Our help is not in man but in God. Our sustenance is in Him who is Self-Existent and Self-Sufficient. If we look away from Him, we look away from Help.
When you need joy, look up to God. When you’re in need of a house, look up to God. When you need anything, look up to God. Man was not created to seek things, he was created to have dominion. Any man that is pursuing after the earth will never attain dominion. He will always be subject to the things of the earth.
Our Hope is Yahweh, we look up to Yahweh. Paul writes it like this, “For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.” Acts 17:28. You cannot live outside God, so trust in Him alone for your help. Look up to Him lone for your help.
Man will fail, but God doesn’t fail. Man will disappoint, but God doesn’t. See how David rendered it “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.” Ps. 118:8-9.
It’s time to trust in the finished work of Christ and not in the works of men. Trust in God today for your help. Look up to God for help, not man. Man will fail, God will never fail. He never fails.
