“Where Does My Help Come From?”

Recently, the scripture, “I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1-2) has become a “mantra” for me with robust meaning. I have read and heard that scripture many times in my Christian walk, but lately it has become the start to my days in addition to the prayer in my afternoon, and/or the petition in the quiet of the night. Initially it started with a desperate supplication in the morning, with the simple words — “Lord, I need your help!”

🌸Happy Mother’s Day Week!

Day 5️⃣: Elizabeth, A Mentor Mom to Mary (the Mother of Jesus) 
Her story is found in Luke 1:5-80 

🌿Key Verses:
Luke 1:5-7
“In the time of Herod king of Judea there was a priest named Zechariah, who belonged to the priestly division of Abijah; his wife Elizabeth was also a descendant of Aaron. Both of them were righteous in the sight of God, observing all the Lord’s commands and decrees blamelessly. But they were childless because Elizabeth was not able to conceive, and they were both very old.”
Luke 1:15-17                                                                                                          …”for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even before he is born. He will bring back many of the people of Israel to the Lord their God. And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous—to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

While in her sixth month of pregnancy, Elizabeth had a beloved visitor, her cousin Mary who was also with child. Elizabeth was kind and encouraging and affirmed Mary. Although Elizabeth didn’t yet have the knowledge of raising a child, she poured into Mary wisdom and faith. “But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!” (Luke 1:43-45 NIV) 

▪️Do you have an Elizabeth in your life?
▪️Are you an Elizabeth in another’s mom’s life?
▪️Who can you encourage today?

🌸Moms, pray that the Lord gives you an Elizabeth and that you, in turn, can be Elizabeth too!

Day 4️⃣: Hannah, A Mom Who Kept Her Promise
Her story is found in 1st Samuel 1

🌿Key Verses: 
1st Samuel 1:10-11 “In her deep anguish Hannah prayed to the Lord, weeping bitterly. And she made a vow, saying, ‘Lord Almighty, if you will only look on your servant’s misery and remember me, and not forget your servant but give her a son, then I will give him to the Lord for all the days of his life, and no razor will ever be used on his head.’”

1st Samuel 1:27-28 “‘I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.’ And he worshiped the Lord there.”

Hannah was in a place of deep distress and sadness when she cried out to the Lord in prayer and made a vow to Him. He answered her prayer and gave her a son. Hannah kept her vow and made the ultimate sacrifice as a mom to give her son back to the Lord. The Lord did not look upon her sacrifice lightly. He used Samuel in a big way in the story of King Saul and King David. 

▪️Are you making promises to the Lord or to others? 
▪️Are you keeping those promises? 

🌸Moms, let’s be mothers who are true to our words and not be flippant with the promises we make. In doing so, we honor and glorify God!

Day 3️⃣: The Wife of Manoah, Mother of Samson – A Mother Who Did Not Panic and Obeyed the Lord
Her story is found in Judges 13. 

🌿Key Verses:
See Judges 13:2-5 for the back story 

Judges 13:21-25 
“When the angel of the Lord did not show himself again to Manoah and his wife, Manoah realized that it was the angel of the Lord. ‘We are doomed to die!’ he said to his wife. ‘We have seen God!’ But his wife answered, ‘If the Lord had meant to kill us, he would not have accepted a burnt offering and grain offering from our hands, nor shown us all these things or now told us this.’ The woman gave birth to a boy and named him Samson. He grew and the Lord blessed him, and the Spirit of the Lord began to stir him while he was in Mahaneh Dan, between Zorah and Eshtaol.”

The mother of Samson is not named in the Bible, however, what she did would bring the Israelites out of 40 years of Philistines rule. We all know the story of Samson, how God used him to free Israel from the Philistines. We don’t often think about his mother, and how the Lord used her to begin Israel’s road to freedom. She was barren when the angel of the Lord visited her. He told her she would have a son and that her son would deliver Israel from the hands of the Philistines. He gave her a few instructions and left. Later in the chapter, we see that she and her husband have seen the angel of the Lord again. When her husband realized that they had seen the angel of the Lord he began to panic. She was able to keep calm and think logically. She obeyed the instructions of the angel and Samson grew and the Lord blessed him. 

▪️Have you been in a similar situation where you know you should be calm and trust the Lord, even when others around you are worried, stressed or panicked?
▪️What is the Lord calling you to trust Him with today?

🌸Moms, when a situation arises that is scary — it is normal to panic. When that panic hits you pray that you can remain calm and be confident that God is with you.

Day 2️⃣: Jochebed, A Courageous Mom
Her story is found in Exodus 2 

🌿Key Verses:
Exodus 2:1-3
“Now a man of the tribe of Levi married a Levite woman, and she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. When she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him for three months. But when she could hide him no longer, she got a papyrus basket for him and coated it with tar and pitch. Then she placed the child in it and put it among the reeds along the bank of the Nile.”

Jochebed was an Israelite mother that lived in a terrible time in Israel’s history. Can you imagine the horror that she faced knowing that an Egyptian might snatch her baby boy (Moses) and cast him into the Nile River? While contemplating sending Moses down the Nile in a basket, we can only wonder what thoughts and fears she was struggling with. Yet she sent her baby away from her protection and trusted that God would take care of him. What courage! This type of confidence in God can only come from years of learning to develop a genuine trust in God.

▪️What about you, do you need to release a child? 
▪️Are you struggling to let go?
▪️What do you think God might want to teach through letting go? 

🌸Moms, don’t let worry about tomorrow steal your courage to follow God’s plan for today.

“When Mother’s Day Isn’t So Happy”
🌸Happy Mother’s Day Week!

This week we will be sharing stories from some Next Level Moms 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗕𝗶𝗯𝗹𝗲. 

Day 1️⃣: Hagar, A Mom Who Found El Roi - The God Who Sees — Her story is found in Genesis 16 & 21

🌿Key Verses:
Genesis 21:15-20a 
“When the water in the skin was gone, she put the boy under one of the bushes. Then she went off and sat down about a bowshot away, for she thought, ‘I cannot watch the boy die.’ And as she sat there, she began to sob. God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, ‘What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there. Lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation.’ Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water. So she went and filled the skin with water and gave the boy a drink. God was with the boy as he grew up.”

Hagar’s world was turned upside in a moment when she was asked to leave her home, along with her son Ishmael. For days they wandered hopelessly as their water ran out. Hagar was so distraught that “she put the boy under one of the bushes” (Genesis 21:15). But El Roi, The God Who Sees, saw Hagar and Ishmael and provided a well of water. Isn’t He good?

▪️Have you ever encountered a situation that blindsided you?
▪️Have you ever felt hopeless?
▪️Have you ever felt so distraught that you felt like giving up?

🌸 𝓜𝓸𝓶𝓼, you are not alone - Hagar is an example of how life can really shake you up sometimes. In those moments, rest in the fact the God Sees You!
