Watch small puppies. Their short legs limit their mobility. They can only go places their limbs will carry them.
To get to the high places, like on a sofa or a bed, they need a hand up. They don’t mind begging. They will take assistance from anyone who will offer.
Sometimes we need to be more like a puppy. We’ve become so independently minded that we refuse to allow anyone to come to our rescue.
We can do it, we cry, often with defiance and a red face.
Or we go the opposite direction, become entitled, and we expect the help because it’s our right. We no longer see that we must play a part in taking that helping hand we desperately need.
You’ve failed me again, we cry, as tears roll down our face.
Jeremiah 17:14 says we already have 2 Helps We Don’t Want to Overlook.
“Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise.”
Are you sick, in pain, in need of physical relief?
“Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed.”
Are you spiritually adrift? Is your life out of control?
“Save me, and I shall be saved.”
Let’s read the part we must play in receiving our help from God.
“For you are my praise.”
We tweak God’s heart when we lift our voice in praise unto him.
God is our help, and in him, we find rescue in our need.
