How Does God Say, “I Will Help You”?
Reading Psalms 139:13-14 (NLT) is amazing:
“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous – how well I know it.”
Of course I will help you.
Do not be afraid for I am your true strength.
You draw wisdom, understanding and knowledge from this hour with Me.
It is a quiet understanding that I will help you with all things,
Because I love and care for you
I will give you courage and boldness.
Remember the old adage ‘there are no stupid questions’.
It is only when you neglect to ask Me or others that
you stop growing and learning.
I know you feel comfortable with Me because we have had
a meaningful relationship for many, many years.
The times we walk and talk together are precious to Me.
I know you wonder how that can be since I am King of all kings.
However, I am the God who fashioned you in your mother’s womb,
and knows your inner thoughts and needs.
I love you, My precious child.
Sometimes, it is hard for me to comprehend that God truly is interested in everything we do!! Yet, He does care and wants to help us accomplish those tasks he planned for us to do.
Each day as I talk to God about even trivial concerns,
He helps me choose a better perspective. (tweet this)
Since we live in small places, it sometimes is difficult to entertain guests easily and I often feel stressed.
Yet one time, in the midst of a situation, God directed me to a scripture 1 Peter 4:8, 9 (NLT):
“Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay”.
Reminders , such as this scripture from the Lord, are very wonderful as they encourage rather than discourage us and assist us in learning His way of living lovingly and peacefully.
