Psalm 121:1-2, I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
Could you use a little help today? I don’t know of too many people who aren’t in need of something today. So many people are struggling financially, or if it isn’t their finances, maybe it’s their health, or they hate their job, whatever it may be that is weighing on you today take it to God. I am not saying that flippantly, believe me! Too often we try handling everything on our own or we run to friends and all the while God is trying to get our attention so we will go to Him. You don’t have to figure it all out on your own. You don’t have to settle. Allow God to be your everything and ask Him to help you grow in your faith and trust in Him. Ask Him to show you what you need to do and then trust Him with the rest.
When you need help, especially when you are in the middle of the storm there are a million questions that cross your mind if you are lacking faith: I know God can, but will He ……. What if God doesn’t do what I think needs to be done…… how can I possibly make it 1 more day……. You have to learn to trust Him! Understand that He has a plan so if it doesn’t work out the way you think it should, He still has a plan and He is still working on your situation, don’t panic. Take a deep breath and ask Him to fill you with His peace and direction. Ask Him to guide you and help you see that He is moving on it. It is ok to ask Him for a sign. Ask Him for a verse to clarify that you are headed in the right direction and that He is by your side. He wants a closer walk with you! He wants you to know and experience His love. Trust me, satan will do his best to discourage you by whispering lies to you to discourage you and hold you back, you will have to choose to reject those thoughts. It is truly a battle! Remember Ephesians 6:10-20! You can’t ignore the battle for your mind.
God wants to lead you into all He created you to be. Write out Jeremiah 29:11-13 and carry it with you! Hold on to the promises He has given you over the years. Pull out those dreams you had and dust them off. Ask Him to show you His dreams for your life and pursue Him with your whole heart and watch Him work! It’s not easy, nothing in life is really easy, but there’s no one better to walk through it all with than our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He loves you so much and He cares about every single tear you have cried. He cares about those struggles at work and in your home and in your finances. Ask Him for His help today! Pursue Him and His plan for your life, knowing that His best is yet to come! Help is on the way!
