Have you ever been in a situation when you wanted HELP immediately? As some friends and relatives come in contact with persons who have COVID-19, there is a feeling of needing help for several reasons. We don’t know the outcome of that moment and we may not know where to turn for the right kind of medical care. We need to know the correct response in these moments.
There was a Levitical family in the Old Testament known as Korah. They rose up in rebellion against Moses causing God to instantly punish them with death. However, a few members of this family survived, and through the years learned very important lessons about God’s character.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah” (Psalm 46:1–3).
Jeremiah heard God say to him, ““Am I a God at hand, declares the Lord, and not a God far away?” (23:23). These are comments from persons who really knew God as being very near, especially in times of trouble.
There is nothing greater I could do for you than to encourage you to know Him in this personal way. Both Jeremiah and the Sons of Korah knew God intimately. Actually, He is right there with you and wants to establish a strong relationship with you so that even if trouble comes into your life, you will know God as your “refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
