Lord Help Me

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- February 28, 2011

“The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said.” Matthew 15:25

A life lived well requires help from the Lord. Life is like a ship on an open sea: we navigate through calm waters, rough waters, uncertain waters and beautiful waters—but all the time trusting its Creator.  The source of our strength must be Christ, or we grow chronically tired. Faith in the Lord triumphs over fear and frustration—this is especially true when someone we love suffers severely and all we can do is lift them up to Jesus.

Indeed, His help happens to those who kneel in humble dependency and cry out to Jesus, “Lord help me!” When the body writhes in pain, we cry for help. When a critical word crushes our spirit, we cry for help. When unanswered questions stalk our mind, we cry for help. When relational conflict emaciates our emotions, we cry for help. Help from heaven gives hope, healing and the energy to push through tough times and trust Him.

“The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him” (Psalm 28:7).

His help gives joy where laughter has left. His help gives confidence in the middle of crisis. His help gives forgiveness when hurt has severed another’s trust. His help harnesses grace and bridles a toxic tongue. His help reaches to the poorest of the poor, the richest of the rich and everyone in between—with His saving grace in Jesus Christ. His help helps.

How can Jesus help you? Do you need wisdom? Ask Him with a humble heart and He will hear and answer your request. His response may come in the form of godly friends who give you wise advice—so look around and listen intently—for the Lord speaks through those who truly love you. Jesus helps those who humbly seek out and trust wise counsel.

“When a mocker is punished, the simple gain wisdom; by paying attention to the wise they get knowledge” (Proverbs 21:11).

Furthermore, who do you know that needs the Lord’s help? Have you on bended knee petitioned Jesus on their behalf? Be bold for their sakes and for the glory of God. Go to Jesus, so someone can get to Jesus’ needed healing and forgiveness. Be an advocate for others, as some don’t know what they don’t know—ignorance requires our bold belief on its behalf.

“May the Lord grant that he will find mercy from the Lord on that day” (2 Timothy 1:18a).

What help do I need from the Lord? For whom can I seek help from the Lord on their behalf?

    I am the owner of JustCBD company (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently planning to broaden my wholesale side of business. I am hoping anybody at targetdomain share some guidance ! I thought that the very best way to do this would be to reach out to vape companies and cbd stores. I was really hoping if someone could recommend a dependable site where I can buy CBD Shops B2B Leads I am already reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the most ideal choice and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

  3. Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you writing this write-up and the rest of the site is very good.

  4. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

    You should take part in a contest for one of the best blogs on the net. I’m going to recommend this web site!

  6. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I think that you should publish more about this subject, it might not be a taboo subject but usually people don’t speak about these issues. To the next! Best wishes!!

  7. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not disappoint me as much as this particular one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read, but I genuinely thought you would have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something you could fix if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.

  11. Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to produce a really good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.

  12. Scam Reviews says:

    This is a really good tip particularly to those fresh to the blogosphere. Brief but very accurate info… Many thanks for sharing this one. A must read post!

    When I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service? Cheers!

  15. You’ve made some decent points there. I looked on the internet for additional information about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this site.
