Psalms 20:2 – May He send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion. Extraordinary and unique ways are designed by God to send help to His children while they are in this world. God’s sources of support for His children presuppose the stark reality that the sources on earth are insufficient to meet their needs. It also underscores the fact that the needs of God’s children are met with all the sufficiency of God which is beyond measure or imagination. First of all support comes directly from the presence of God which is filled with the magnificence of the glory of God where His children are seated. As they sit in God’s Throne Room, they are partakers of all that is reserved for His children to draw upon. In spite of all that is there, God Himself is there in His Throne Room, and His children get Him more than any thing else which is far greater in sufficiency to meet all their needs. In comparison with the tiny needs of God’s Children, God’s person, His personal glory and the abundance of His grace and love are so vast and far beyond any imagination. All of these are available to us to meet all our needs right now. These are flowing to us uninterrupted. But we are often so short sighted as not to see and enjoy all that comes our way directly from His presence. Abraham was satisfied by seeing His glory from a distance. David sang innumerable songs about the magnificence of this Lord and His sufficiency. Solomon wrote vast number of proverbs touching on this glory and Isaiah prophesied about what His glory would accomplish throughout the coming ages. This glorious person came to Bethlehem as a baby to touch the rough patches of human life and to fill it with His riches. He has opened the windows of Zion and showered His vast riches to His servants through the centuries from the abundance of His rich warehouse. People like Abraham, Joseph, Elijah, Elisha, Gideon, Samson, David, Peter, James, John, Paul and millions of His other servants throughout the last several centuries imbibed from it. Our help today comes from this same reservoir.
