Five Minute Friday: Help
God is our protection and our strength. He always helps in times of trouble.
Immediately when I saw today’s word, I went to this verse as well as a song that has become very meaningful in the last year or so.
There are so many times when we look for help from the things that surround us – our own self-sufficiency, friends, hobbies, to-do lists, busyness. I often look to fill my time up when I am in the midst of a struggle, yet never really address the root of the problem. I look to pull myself up out of it all and miss out on the help that comes directly from the Lord. He alone has the ability to protect us from our own selves and give us the strength we need to overcome insecurity, pride, temptation. I usually go through phases of all these despite their being so extreme.
Today, I spend a moment to remember where the help comes from. The only assistance that will ever be 100% successful.
He takes my failures, my burdens, my struggles and carries them for me – may I completely let them go and allow HIM to help me
