He said to them, “You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.” John 8:23
A woman was hiking with her dog earlier this year near Horsetail Falls in California’s El Dorado National Forest. This is a deceptively difficult area in the Sierra Nevada mountains, and the woman became trapped. Just at the moment of panic, help came from above. A California Highway Patrol helicopter spotted the woman and her dog. Two search and rescue workers descended by ropes and were soon on the ground beside the pair. The workers helped get them back to safety.
Help always comes from above for God’s children when we become disoriented by life. The Bible says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights” (James 1:17). The best and most perfect gift ever given was the Lord Jesus Christ, who came from above to stand beside us. The Bible is God’s Word from above. The Holy Spirit also came down to indwell you.
Rest assured that God reaches down to you in your darkest times to be with you and bring you comfort. Today you have help descending down from above!
We can do no good thing at all, except we are aided by help from above.
