I’ve been soaking in one word these past few weeks.
Where does my help come from?
Oh, we look in so many different areas for help… doctors, parents, friends, pastors, churches, programs… but, although those can be valid resources for us, God IS our help.
He is the only one who can help us in the truest sense of the word.
Help is defined as “to give or provide what is necessary to accomplish a task or satisfy a need; contribute strength or means to; render assistance to; cooperate effectively with; aid; assist, save, rescue”
God is the only one who can really, fully HELP us like that!
My firebible notes say, “We must never view family, friends or wealth as our ultimate source of help in this life. That position belongs to God. He is the only complete source for meeting our needs physically and spiritually. We must trust Him with all our hearts and depend on Him for mercy and help in our times of need.”
I put together a new list of Sink Verses for us all focusing on the word HELP.
Sink verses – verses for you to print and post somewhere in your house, like the bathroom or kitchen sink, to help you memorize and remember God’s Word!
