Look to the Lord
“But as for me, I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me” (Micah 7.7 ESV).
There is nothing wrong with receiving and giving help to others. God made people to be social beings that need one another. However, the help from others is directly stemmed from God. He is the Maker of everything, and He can move the hearts of people to intervene in the lives of others. So when we seek help, we must always go to the Lord first and foremost. And when we receive help, we can thank those who have helped us, but we must remember that the help ultimately came from God. When we keep this in mind, it reminds us to not put any human on a pedestal. God is the only One who deserves our highest praise and adoration. We waste time and energy trying to beg people to support us. If God has not opened a door in our life, we must continue to wait patiently for Him to move. And while we wait, we can continue praying prayers filled with faith and belief! Many times as we wait an interesting thing occurs—God doesn’t use someone else to open that door for us; instead, He uses us! The entire time we were expecting God to send someone to do something that He had ordained us to do! So wait on the Lord, and you will find out just how resourceful you can be.
“My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth” (Psalm 121. 2 AMP).
