Psalm 46:1 (ESV)
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Life can be really tough at times. People let you down, situations let you down. You experience heartache, disappointment and all these difficult things can sometimes make you want to give up on God. When you experience tough times, what do you do? Where do you go? Who do you lean on?
The answers to these questions show you what your life is built upon. If you drown your sorrows in ice cream and Netflix, then you know that there is where you go to get help. God would like to be your help when things get hard.
The Bible tells us that He is our refuge and strength. He wants to be where you go when things are tough. When you don’t know how you’re going to pass your history class, He wants to be your source of wisdom. When things aren’t going the way you expected, He wants to be the one you turn to. God wants to be your help when things get tough.
It’s up to you though, to decide to let Him have that place in your life. You can choose to go to friends, Netflix and ice cream when things are tough. And by all means, those things have their place, but have you gone to God? Have you let Him be your help too?
If you haven’t yet, choose today to do things differently. Choose to let God be your helper. Let Him speak into your life. Look to the Bible for your answers and see the power of letting God be your help in times of need.
Dear Lord we pray that we would let You be our helper. Help us to not try and do things on our own. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
