“Help me, someone help me! I’ve fallen and can’t get up. Someone help me, please!” cried a lady in obvious pain and distress. Actually, there was no real person calling for help. It was a television commercial advertising personal security systems for people who live alone and might need help if they were fell or were having a difficult time and had no one to rescue them.
All of us know that feeling of being helpless, perhaps even hopeless at times. Problems surface, or seem to descend from the sky when we least expect them. We know they are beyond us, recognize our limits and cry out for help. Life’s demands are beyond us. They force us to see that we cannot take care of ourselves by ourselves. We are forced to reach out and up. There is something inside all of us that tells each of us that life is beyond every one of us. That “something” is a gift from God. He wants us to search for Someone. It begins at birth when we utter that first cry for help not knowing who will respond. It only ends when we turn to Him.
Most of us have turned to God recognizing His power and strength and desire to help us. That need for Him is normal and natural because He planted it there when He created us. He knew we would search for Him and He also knew that He would respond in love when we call on Him to make us complete in Christ.
David said those who say “there is no God are fools.” Are they dumb or stupid or ignorant? No! They are fools because they choose to live life without God.
Prayer: Thank You, God, for hearing and answering our calls for help. Thank You for meeting our needs. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Psalm 53:1 The fool has said in his heart,“There is no God.” They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; There is none who does good.
