I have another confession to make: I can be a bit proud at times, meaning to say not humble. I often depend too much on my own abilities, skill and talents, and fail to depend more on God’s power and provision. So, when things go wrong, I usually blame myself, and end up feeling down and depressed.
Here’s the thing: We all need a good dose of humility. We all need to learn to be humble, and accept the fact that we need God’s help ALL.the.time. Yes, even in our day-to-day, “mundane” routines, we need Him and His grace.
The sad truth, though, is that we usually fail to see that we need God’s help when we are too busy; when we are too focused on “doing” rather than “being” — especially being in God’s presence.
Well, here’s another truth we should remember: Even Jesus, who was God Himself, needed help; He needed to be always connected to God; He always prayed and sought God, especially during the times He knew He would need God’s help. One example of those times was when He prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane — He knew the time of His suffering and death was near.
To help drive home this point — that even Jesus needed help, thus, we need to seek God’s help too — here’s the latest episode of “The Truly Rich Mom Show” — I pray it will encourage, inspire, and empower you somehow:
May we never, ever forget the power of God’s grace, help, and provision — may we always strive to be humble and declare with all our hearts, “Lord, I need You!” I love this song by Matt Maher, actually — this is the cry of my heart this very moment:
Do you need God’s help in a special way right now? Do you have a specific prayer concern that is on your mind this very minute? Please feel free to let me know in the comments, so we can pray for one another!
