Sometimes we just need help.
Some days are hard and we wonder where that help comes from.
Who is there when we need help?
What can we do when we need help?
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 deliver when we need help. He is our help 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.”

Do you trust Him to be your help?
What is your go to verse when you need help?
I love what your bible notes said about never looking to family to be our source of help. That has been something I’ve had to realize and ask for forgiveness on…..when my mom died, I started to fear so much because she was my security and I felt like how would I make it with out her. The Lord has been helping me to see that HE is my security and I have to trust HIM.
I do trust God to be my help and these verses are wonderful reminders of that. Thank you my dear friend for sharing them!
