Have you ever noticed how a small child will come to a parent for help when they’re struggling with something? Whether it is a toy they are struggling with or if they’re having difficulty getting themselves dressed, they will seek out mom or dad for assistance. Why do we feel like when we’re all grown up we have to do everything ourselves?
God created us for relationship both with Him and others, yet when we reach adulthood we tend to stop asking others for help. Many even stop asking God for help and try and work things out on their own and then struggle with God when things don’t work out as they anticipated. We can’t go through life doing things our own way and then blame God when they don’t go well for us.
God calls us to come to Him with our worries and our burdens [Matthew 11:28]. Psalm 55:22 says “Cast your cares on the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.” He wants to be our source of help in our time of need [Hebrews 4:16, Psalm 121].
Asking the Lord for help during difficult times isn’t a sign of weakness. It is a sign of wisdom. Job 9:4 says “His wisdom is profound, His power is vast. Who has resisted Him and come out unscathed?”
Are you struggling with something today? It’s okay to run to your Daddy for help. He is there and He is waiting, eager to be your source of help and strength.
