Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord their God – Psalm 146:5
Blessed are you when you know where your strength comes from. When you can run to the Lord your God for help in time of need and unashamedly cast all your burdens on Him as a son/daughter to their father. He will never turn His back on us, His banner over us is love, an everlasting love that we can call and count on at all times. How comforting it is to know that when we cry out to Him He hears us and delivers us from all our fears. How sacred, how holy, how glorious! We look to Him for grace, we turn to Him for strength and He will not tarry to show up.
