“I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.” Psalms 3:4
My closest friends know that when I’m going through anything, I mostly go straight to the Lord. I go to Him because He’s my Father and He is the only One who can truly help me. However, there has been times when the storms of life dealt a mighty blow so heavy that I needed someone to help lift me up until I was able to stand again. There has been times when I felt too weak to pray and too broken to study my Bible. I needed help and thank God I wasn’t too afraid or too prideful to ask for it. God has blessed me with sisters in Christ that are ready at the drop of a dime to come to my rescue and help lift me up whenever I need it. I like to call them spiritual paramedics that come to our aid, giving us the power we need in order to come out of whatever is holding us hostage.
It’s great when you are able to go straight to God and get what you need, but there’s nothing wrong with calling for help when you feel like your strength is gone. The devil will have us thinking, “If I ask for for help, that means I’m not who I say I am.” “If I ask for help, they may think I’m not strong and they will change their mind about me.” But who cares about what anyone thinks when you have forgotten who you are and you need someone to remind you? Who cares about image or reputation when your marriage and family is under attack and you need someone to pray and stand with you? Who cares about what people think when you are sick and dying and you need someone to pray the prayer of faith over you? In these dangerous times in which we live, this is not the time to be afraid or prideful.
When you call on the Lord, His help may come directly from His Word, or He may send one of His spiritual paramedic believers to help you, or He might dispatch an angel to minister strength to you. His ways are endless, but no matter how He does it, just know that He will answer you when you call on Him and He will deliver you from all of your fears (see Psalms 34:4).
Prayer: Father God, I thank You for speaking directly to my heart. I call on You right now. Save me Lord. Save my family. Save my friends. Help us to not be overwhelmed with everything we’re facing, but to only be overwhelmed by Your grace and glory. Strengthen me Lord when I feel weak. Focus my mind when I feel confused. Help me not to be prideful or too afraid to reach out for help when I need someone to stand with me in faith. I love You Lord and I thank You for loving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

I Thank my Heavenly Daddy for my great best Friends , Joeleene, Helena, and Vergie , but most of all my Lord And Saviour Jesus Christ , Our all n all. Amen.
Amen. HE IS FAITHFUL AND TRUE and will answer us when we humble ourselves and acknowledge that we need help.
Thank you Daughters of the king. As I read this devotional this morning, I am reminded of Psalm 34:19 – 20 ” The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time. For the Lord protects the bones of the righteous, not one of them is broken” There are times when I wish I could escape troubles, the pain of grief loss, sorrow and failure or even the small daily frustrations that constantly wears me down. God promises to be close to the brokenhearted and to be my source of power, courage and wisdom or even helping me through my problems. Sometimes he chooses to deliver us from those problems and sometimes it won’t, not in our timing, because he has a plan and a purpose. He can and He will use these moments to accomplish His purpose. Just a word of encouragement for my sister’s today ” when trouble strikes, and believe me they will, don’t get frustrated with God, instead admit that you need His help and thank him for being by your side, thank Him in Advance for the outcome ” He is faithful and on time. Keep Jeremiah 29:11 close to Heart, it comforts me and I’m sure it will comfort you as well.
Please forgive me for that major typo. It should read sometimes He won’t.
