I lift up my eyes to the hills. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2

            I just don’t like to ask for help. I’m so set on being independent I have always charged ahead. My family had one nickname for me growing up, crash. That’s right, more times than I can count, I just didn’t wait for help. Often, I would say, I don’t need help, I can do it myself, leave me alone. My family could count on something along those lines to come out of my mouth.

            Well and then I went to College, out on my own for the first time, and I realized, oh gee, I need help. Not so much getting around, (I was clear on that as I had been down earlier in the summer before school began to scope out the area.) But this was all new. How do I make best use of my time, how do I make friends? How do I not become lonely even in this busy place?

            Well friends, truth is, we all need help. There’s no shame. Absolutely no one can do it all themselves. We need each other. If not, God wouldn’t have made it so. We need what each other brings: ideas, thoughts, emotions, suggestions, talents, on and on. We just can’t get along in this world without help.

            But is that all? Even if the best human being gave us help would it be enough? Truth is, we face daily many unanswered questions, seemingly unsolvable problems, circumstances which seem just too much, and challenges which seem insurmountable. Imagine if we couldn’t look to God? I shudder at the thought.

            So, are you looking to God when you need help, big or small? Are you looking to God when you’re working out a problem? Are you looking to God when you’re figuring something out? Are you looking to God when something doesn’t make sense? Are you looking to God when you’re truly at the end of your rope?

            The Psalmist reminds us we must always lift our eyes of faith up to God, the maker of heaven and earth. After all, since he created it all, he’s a part of it all. That’s the good news for us. There’s nowhere we can go where he doesn’t see us, nowhere we don’t have his help available to us.

            So my prayer for you this week, look to God in all you do. Look for him when you want and when you don’t want. Look for him to help you even if it hurts to admit you need him. Let him help you, it’s the best help you’ll ever receive. It may seem at times you’re getting nowhere, but with his help, you’ll get everywhere!

To God be the glory in Jesus name.

Pastor Brandon
