Today’s Reading:


"Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man." (v. 11)


The help of man is vain. Human help is worthless. Give us aid against the foe. Give us help against the adversary. Give us help against our enemies. Vain is the deliverance of man. With God, we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies. For some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.

Psalm 46:1 -2 says God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea."

Our help is in God alone. Man can promise us his assistance, and yet desert us. Man cannot save, Man cannot guide without the help of God. In vain do we look to Man for any form of aid. Help of man is empty, hopelessly hopeless. Severally have we been promised different lovely things by our leaders, by people we trust, but comes to nothing.... Better life, better Education, better Security, uninterrupted power supply etc but unfortunately things are getting worse. Innocent souls are being wasted; security is nosediving. We cannot explain lots of things that are happening. This is the time to look up and hold tight to the promise of God, for He alone can help us, as an individual, as family, as a Church, as Nation. We ran Lord, we are still running Lord... Words of Man has failed us, Arise O God, and come to our help. Arise in your Mercy Lord, Arise in your power Lord and come to our rescue. Your churches are being destroyed & burnt, the children of God are being harassed, oppressed , persecuted & killed. We need your help NOW, for vain is the help of Man.

I beseech you to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour if you have not done that. This is your sure way to God's help & eternal living. May you not lose this opportunity in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

God bless,




  1. God arise and contend with those contending with my life and destiny, in Jesus’ name.

  2. Father Lord, continue to be my present help in trouble, in Jesus’ name.

  3. Holy Spirit, overshadow my life, and family, in Jesus’ name.

  4. God arise, scatter the enemies of Your Church, in Jesus’ name.

  5. God arise, scatter the enemies of our nation in Jesus’ name.
