“I lift up my eyes to the mountains — where does my help come from?” Psalm 121:1
When life gets difficult, what do you do?
If you’ll be honest, then your answer will sound something like
(i) throw pity parties 😤
(ii) complain ☹️
(iii) give up 😪
(iv) blame everybody for the situation including God 😒
I know this because I have experienced it too . Toooo many times. Oh yes 😂😂
But I have learnt that none of the above actions will EVER yield a positive fruit. If anything, they will only further push the already sinking ship…deeper, if you know what I mean 🙅.
So my question is, why would any of us want to waste our time doing activities that make us miserable when we can look up and reach out to God?
Could it be because we’re stubborn? 😒
I believe God didn’t make any of us to be self-sufficient. He wants us to rely on Him. That means there are things that we can do. And there are things that ONLY God can do 😎.
And instead of throwing tantrums ‘cos we can’t help ourselves 😑, we can actually just reach out and ask the One who can really help. So, ‘no you can’t do all bad by yourself’ 😜 .
You need God. And I need Him just as much.
Final words, our attitude from time-to-time should be “I’ll look up to the hills where does my help come from. My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth…’.
Doing this pleases God cos it shows we depend and trust Him.
