It is hard to believe that Christmas is just over a month away. This has been a strange year with the lockdowns of Covid-19 disrupting all our plans.
In many ways the uncertainties, losses, disruptions and challenges of this pandemic have played havoc with our mental wellbeing. Many people I meet feel worn down and frustrated with the uncertainties and the awareness that at any moment we can all be in yet another lockdown.
I do hope that our text from Hebrews 13:5-6 will be a blessed respite and encouragement in a gloomy time of uncertainty. Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you, so we say with confidence, the Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid, what can man do to me?
This is a timely encouragement and blessed reminder that God our Lord is still in charge and despite Covid-19 and the disruption it causes, we will never, never, never be forsaken. On the contrary, we who trust Him and not our money or our own resources, can know His divine promise, that His help and presence dispels all worry and fear. How futile to be worried when the God of all creation has promised His limitless resources to meet our deepest need.
When we need help, he is all the help we need.
