ALLOW GOD TO HELP YOU
God is there to help us. He will not force Himself on us, but He is there when we seek His help. I would argue strongly that far too many people try to do things on their own, never allowing God to help. God stands ready and willing to help us, all we need to do is ask. We need God’s help in everything that we do. When you find that you are going through a storm, ask the Lord to help you. Ask Him for guidance, for strength —whatever you need, just ask Him. Do not do it on your own. Humble yourself in
the knowledge that none of us can do anything without Him. He stands ready to help. In Ephesians 4:23, we find these words:
Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.
The writer speaks about living as children of light, talking about the need to throw off the old sinful nature and former way of life and put on a new nature, created to be like God. He recognizes the people cannot do anything on their own. He tells them to ask God to give them the strength to live up to that new nature, so that they will no longer live in a sinful way but in a way that pleases God. When you get a chance, read this entire chapter. Prayerfully, we will all remember to allow God to help us whenever we are in need.
