"Help, Lord !"

God wants us to depend entirely on Him. He wants us to lean on, trust in and rely on Him. Actually, that is part of the definition of faith. We are partners with God, and that means we both have responsibility. But we must lean on Him in order to do the things that are our part. God called me into the ministry and He anointed (enabled) and gifted me to do what I need to do, but I still have to trust Him and remember how much I need Him at all times.

Sometimes we may think that we don't need God's help with things we have done over and over again successfully. Why would we need help with something we already know we can do? It is dangerous to become self-reliant. The book of Proverbs speaks frequently of the self-confident fool. People who think they are self-sufficient and can take care of themselves are being foolish- and eventually that will be proven to everyone including themselves.

An independent attitude is part of the baby stage of Christianity. A mature Christian knows that he can do nothing of any real value apart from Jesus. Of couse, we can do things, but that doesn't mean they will be done right or that we will enjoy them or that they will produce any real lasting fruit.

When the Lord says we can do nothing apart from Him, He means things will not work properly in our lives unless we invite Him into everything. His presence can eliminate much of the struggle we experience in life. It makes impossible things possible, hard things easy and frustrating things peaceful. Do not ever be afraid to say, "Help, Lord, I can't do this without You."
