Our first instinct in times of trouble is to keep our hands on the situation and control it to our advantage. I certainly have been guilty. I’m sure you have heard the saying “God helps those who help themselves”. Well contrary to popular belief, this saying is not in the Bible. God does not help those who help themselves. He helps those who are helpless and dependant on him. He helps those who look to him as their only source of help for their problem. We try to help ourselves, thinking that for certain matters we don’t really need God. I speak from experience. Thank you God for helping me to realize I cannot do nothing without you. Nothing means nothing, no matter how small we think it is. We have to step out in faith and trust that God is working within us and beside us.
