Do you ever feel like screaming at the top of your lungs, “I need help”? In our self-sufficient, self-reliant world it’s considered a sign of weakness and even failure to cry out for help. We can’t admit that we aren’t able to “handle it”, whatever it is but in our spiritual walk, its completely the opposite.
“I look to the hills! Where will I find help? 2 It will come from the LORD, who created the heavens and the earth. 3 The LORD is your protector, and he won’t go to sleep or let you stumble.” Psalm 121 CEV
“Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth” Psalm 124:8 KJV
While doing a search on the word help, I found that it is listed 166 times in the King James version of the Bible and most of those times it is used in context of the Lord being there to help; the others generally refer to us helping others.
It’s easy to get caught up in relying on our intellect, money, position, our government and even our family to be our basis for support and help. However, it’s important that we realize where our help truly comes from.
“ Keep your lives free from the love of money. And be satisfied with what you have. God has said,
“I will never leave you; I will never run away from you.”
6 So we can feel sure and say,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. People can do nothing to me.” Hebrews 13:5-6 CEV
Look up! You’ll find the help you need!
