We all want and need God’s help. Or do we?
I’ve come to realize that asking for God’s help is just like saying I can do some of this myself. I just need a little extra help to get me through.
I know sometimes it seems the words aren’t that important, saying we need His help or we need His strength, but I think it is important to have the right frame of mind. Until we realize that asking for help is just the same as saying we can do some of this on our own, is a lot different than admitting that we can’t do anything on our own. He is the vine, we are the branch. We get our strength and life from Him.
It seems some of the weak areas I have in my life never changed when I was asking God for His help to overcome them. One day I realized I was constantly having the same problems time after time. I came to the point I admitted I could not do this. I told God if He didn’t give me His strength, I was going to keep right on doing the things I was trying to overcome in my own strength.
Subconsciously we all know we can’t live this life without God. Once we finally realize and consciously tell God we can’t do it, that we don’t need His help but we need His strength, then things will start to change. God is saying that His strength is sufficient. He doesn’t need our help, it’s all Him.
