We all need help. Some of us need help from the moment we wake up to the moment we return to a night of slumber. Some of us require help in our sleep. Everyone need help just to get through another day. None of us can do anything in and of ourselves. If you were to take a true inventory of your complete day you will see the help that you had been given and the help that you provided to others. Anyone that does not think that help from other resources are a requirement in life is full of pride and lack true understanding of life in reality. Let me break down some basics that people do not think about.
- We need light to see: We use electricity to ignite the lamps for the use of the bulbs. Without electricity we must rely on candles or oil lanterns. The candles are made from the secretion that bee’s offer which is wax. The oil is a natural resource from the ground. All in all none of these things would be possible had GOD not provided any of them for our use. Benjamin Franklin did not discover electricity he harnessed it; the electricity was always there. In the book of Genesis we see how GOD created all. Adam named all the animals flying; creeping; beast and of the water. When GOD told Noah to collect all the animal two of a kind male and female; the bees were included in that voyage. So you see from the simplest thing that we don’t think about to the things that are always on our mind; we need help.
Do you know that when JESUS provided salvation to the world; HE provided help? Well, HE did. Maybe the young people will not understand this yet; however, the mature will. This world is filled with chaos; if the ones who had not heard the knock of JESUS on their heart and opened the door and invited HIM in. Chaos would be the norm in our lives also. Everyday in this chaotic world we must rely on the help of the Holy Spirit; we look to the Word of GOD so that we can renew our minds from the chaos and remember that we are ever in need of help. We offer help and we receive help from others to make life easier. For those of you who are old enough to remember the television show The Lone Ranger even he was not without help; he had Tonto. Every success story has help. The Dynamic Duo (Batman & Robin); Superman/Clark Kent; Green Hornet & Kato; GOD/JESUS & The Holy Spirit & us. You may feel alone or think than you are alone and without help.
Commit everything you do to The LORD. Trust HIM, and HE will help you. Psalm 37:5
If you every have a moment of temporary insanity and think that you can do anything without GOD. Know this!
Remain in ME, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in ME, and I in you will produce much fruit. For apart from ME you can do nothing. John 15:4-5
Recognize the experience of GOD’s divine care for you.
Let all who take refuge in GOD rejoice, let them sing joyful praises forever. Spread YOUR protection over them, that all who love YOUR name may be filled with joy. Psalm 5:11
