Oh, please help us against our enemies,
for all human help is useless.
With God’s help we will do mighty things,
for he will trample down our foes.
Danos ayuda contra el adversario, Pues vano es el auxilio del hombre.
En Dios haremos proezas, Y El pisoteará a nuestros adversarios.
Often times we seek other people’s help or advice. This scripture shows that compared to God’s help, human help is useless. Do we seek men before God? The best help of all comes when we fall on our knees and seek God.
The Lord is good,
a stronghold in the day of trouble;
he knows those who take refuge in him.
But with an overflowing flood
he will make a complete end of the adversaries,
and will pursue his enemies into darkness.
Bueno es el SEÑOR,
una fortaleza en el día de la angustia,
y conoce a los que en El se refugian.
Pero con inundación desbordante
pondrá fin a Nínive,
y perseguirá a sus enemigos aun en las tinieblas.
God does know who is with and who is against Him. Some may be able to “fake” there way in this world, but God knows. My only hiding place is God. My only comfort is God. Everything I have is from God, and I can only praise God. All honor and praise to God!
18For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
19But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
20They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.
21Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.
22Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
18 Confieso, pues, mi iniquidad;
afligido estoy a causa de mi pecado.
19 Pero mis enemigos son vigorosos y fuertes;
muchos son los que sin causa me aborrecen.
20 Y los que pagan mal por bien
se me oponen, porque yo sigo lo bueno.
21 No me abandones, oh SEÑOR;
Dios mío, no estés lejos de mí.
22 Apresúrate a socorrerme,
oh Señor, salvación mía.
This Psalm speaks for itself and it is also my prayer today. We need your help Lord God. Your mercy is greater than anything and we seek Your grace and mercy. Please help Father God.
And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies. And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased. He cast out the nations also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents. Yet they tested and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies: But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow. For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images.
los guió con seguridad, de modo que no temieron, pero el mar se tragó a sus enemigos. Los trajo, pues, a su tierra santa, a esta tierra montañosa que su diestra había adquirido. Y expulsó a las naciones de delante de ellos; las repartió con medida por herencia, e hizo habitar en sus tiendas a las tribus de Israel. Empero ellos tentaron y provocaron al Dios Altísimo, y no guardaron sus testimonios, sino que se volvieron atrás y fueron desleales como sus padres; se desviaron como arco engañoso. Pues le provocaron con sus lugares altos, y despertaron sus celos con sus imágenes talladas.
God keeps us safe and is before us when enemies come against us. I pray I act not like these people and turn away. God please forgive me if I have turned to the right or left. I ask You to help me please keep my eyes always on You. You have blessed me in so many ways and I just have praise for You; that is all I have to offer You my Lord and King. Thank You Father, thank You Jesus and thanks to the Holy Spirit!
That in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies; And in your descendants shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because you have obeyed my voice.
de cierto te bendeciré grandemente, y multiplicaré en gran manera tu descendencia como las estrellas del cielo y como la arena en la orilla del mar, y tu descendencia poseerá la puerta de sus enemigos. Y en tu simiente serán bendecidas todas las naciones de la tierra, porque tú has obedecido mi voz.
Abraham obeyed God and in that we should all give thanks. Look around; we are blessed. If we too will obey God, He will bless us immensely. We have multiplied as the stars of heaven and the sand. My enemies have fallen. Thank you Abraham for listening to God’s voice; may I do the same!
