I read Psalm 108 yesterday and the end of the psalm is stuck in my head: “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.“
Just a great reminder of where our help comes from. People have issues. Since churches are made up of people, churches have issues. Too often, our enemy uses those issues to drive a wedge between us, leaving us as something less than the unstoppable force that Jesus said He would build: His church that would prevail over even the gates of hell. When things aren’t going well, we can tend to snipe and blame and forget whose church we really are. We can lean into our own human help and forget that it’s God’s help that will get us through. Don’t forget. Be reminded today that the church is His and He knows what He’s doing with it.
We’ve been called by God.
We’ve been given His Spirit.
We are on a mission that will not fail.
We have a message that will not be stopped.
