Help and Hope

Psalm 146 gives us instruction on where we can get help and on what and whom we can hope.  In verses 3 and 4 the psalmist tells us where we will not get help or hope, in man.  The reason?  Man does not last; he dies.  Nothing a man creates will last forever.
Help and Hope
In contrast we are exhorted to place our trust in God.  He can help and in Him we have hope.  Why?  Verses 6 – 10 catalog the reasons.  He created the world, He does not change, and He is the source of justice, food, and freedom.  He heals and loves.  He protects and supports.  Then the contrast, He resists the wicked.

How long?  Forever.  There is no end to His ability, power, love.  Think of that we can trust in Him because He is eternal, powerful, and unchanging.  Alter anyone of those and the foundation of our help and hope is destroyed.

How should we respond?  Trust and praise, for this great God.
