Psalms 72:12

"For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper."
Psalms 72:12

This scripture is talking about King Solomon, who was blessed with incredible wisdom.  It also refers to Christ, since Solomon is a type (predecessor, forerunner) of Christ here.  I think that this verse is very interesting when it talks about "him that hath no helper."  In the end, no matter how alone anyone can be, God is still there, watching and helping.  Perhaps we have all felt that alone, where help was out of reach, and the only thing that there was to fall back on was God... and sometimes at times like those we aren't even sure of that.  But God is there, consistent and sure, even when nothing else is or can be.  God gives to those who have no riches and no influence and those who will never receive help from any other source.  Even when you don't like yourself much, God still likes you, and is there for you... which seems pretty amazing to me.
