"Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth."
To have the help of God is a big deal. To have the Lord fighting for us is a great asset. After all, He "made heaven and earth." Think about it: the godless have God as their enemy. He is always set against them. Even as they live, the Lord is simply allowing them to heap up wrath, that will be unleashed on them.
But not so for the church of Christ. Believers are aided and supported in their struggle down here. Life is never easy, but victory is always certain, because the church has a good Captain, who helps her. For this, let us be thankful, and call upon our God.
