Sunday Scriptures — You’re Our Only Hope

By Sandy Kirby Quandt

If you remember, in the first Star Wars movie Princess Leia sent her robot, R2D2, to Obi- Wan Kenobi. Her message was simple. Help me, Obi-Wan. You’re my only hope.

Many a time I’ve uttered…cried…pleaded…the same words to God. HELP! You’re my only hope. There is no other. You alone are able. Help me, Jesus.

While David was running around the country hiding from crazy Saul, he wondered where he should look for help. Should he look to other armies to come riding over the mountains? Should he look to his own cunning and cleverness? What about the safety of the caves?

Although David did align himself with other armies, was very clever and feigned insanity, and hid in caves, he knew all that was useless unless God…the LORD God Jehovah…Sovereign over all…was with David.

We can look to other things as our hope but our true, lasting help will only come from God. He is our help in times of trouble. He is the author of our eternal salvation. He is our present help who will never leave or forsake us.

Who needs Obi-Wan when they have Christ?

I look up to the mountains—does my help come from there?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!                      Psalm 121:1-2

I wish you well.
