Where Do You Look For Help?

Where do you look for help?

Difficulties abound. Financial disaster. Disease. Decisions.

Debates rage. Back and forth. Emotional pain.

Where do you look for help?

Politicians want us to look to them for assistance.

Doctors want us to look to them for healing.

Administrators want us to look to them for solutions.

But no matter how they try

   those sources are imperfect.

Years ago when in a tough place David penned these words.

“My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. Indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalm 121

If we look to politicians we will be disappointed.

If we look to physicians we will be confused.

If we look to friends and family we will grow more and more frustrated.

Only God is worthy of our trust and confidence.

He knows the beginning from the end.

The Lord sees and knows the way we should take.

Our wisdom is found in crying out to Him and then waiting on Him.

Listening. Being still. Seeking His Will above all.

Where do you look for help?

My help comes from the Lord.

How about you?
