Help Me Yah

Excerpt from a book that I am reading:

Moses felt inadequate to be Yah’s spokesman to the pharoah of Egypt—he had no choice but to depend on Yah’s help. This allowed Yah to show his strength through Moshe’s weakness. Exodus 4:12-15 explains:

Yah said to Moshe: “Now go and do as I have told you. I will help you speak well and I will tell you what to say.” But Moses again pleaded, “Yah, please! Send someone else.” Then Yah became angry with Moses. “All, right,” He said. “What about your brother, Aharon the Levite? He is a good speaker. And Look! He is on his way to meet you now. And when he sees you, he will be very glad.  You will talk to him, giving him the words to say. I will help both of you to speak clearly and I will tell you what to do.”

After three days of wandering in the desert without water, the Israylites complained to Moses. Exodus 15:25 reveals that Moses knew who to turn to for help.

So Moses cried out to Yah for help and Yah showed him a branch. Moses took the branch and threw it into the water. This made the water good to drink.

David faced overwhelming obstacles and dangerous enemies many times in his life. He learned to ask Yah for help. In Psalm 145:18-19, David praised Yah for hearing his cries and helping him.

The Most High is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him sincerely. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him. He hears their cries for help and rescues them.

In comic strips and cartoons, masked superheros answer calls for help from those in distress. They rush quickly to the rescue at the sign of trouble. We know, of course, that such characters exist only in fiction and in our imaginations. But at times, we want the cartoons to be true, especially when facing complex issues, giant problems and difficult conflicts. We want someone to hear our frantic cries and run to our side.

These passages in Psalms declare that, in fact, someone is listening. Not an imaginary hero with superhuman powers, but a real person (being) with all power and authority is standing near, ready to save. And more than simply rescuing individuals from temporal plights, this person (being), Yah Almighty, saves for all eternity.  Yah knows your situation and your desires. He stands close and ready to help.
