WHAT IS MEANT BY, “THE LORD IS MY HELPER”?

According to Psalm 118:6, the author of Hebrews writes, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:6, ESV).
The book of Hebrews was written to encourage Christians to face and accept their trials and tribulations (Hebrews 10:32–34). Hebrews 13:6, then, is not just a statement of belief in God’s power and provision but is also a reminder to hold fast to our faith: “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing” (James 1:2–4, ESV). In doing so, James says, we will “receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him” (verse 12, ESV).
“The Lord is my helper” (Hebrews 13:6) is a declaration that represents continual reliance on God’s omnipotence. In Psalm 46:1, the psalmist writes, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” God is a constant source of help, reinforcing the idea that divine assistance is always available. For this reason, we should seek Him in every situation (1 Chronicles 16:11), knowing that His power is greater than our own (Matthew 19:26).
Since God is committed to working everything for our good (Romans 8:28), we have absolutely nothing to fear.
