Psalm 12:1 "Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men."
How many of you have uttered those two words "Help, LORD"? I'm sure many of you have. I know I have. They are probably the two most often spoken words that come from the lips of God's children. On the other hand...it may be the most neglected prayer. Many people try to handle things alone. I've also been guilty of doing that. Have you?
King David was the person praying this prayer in this Scripture verse. Even David needed help. If he needed help...surely you and I need help....and lots of it!
In our most normal of circumstances we need God's help. If you don't or can't get help from God then you are helpless. When we ask for help from God we will get all that we need and sometimes even more than we anticipated from Him.
I think sometimes it is hard to cry "Help, LORD" when you haven't been serving Him or living for Him. However...if you cry out for help from your heart during the most frustrating times in your life He'll help. But He may want to talk to you about a few things first. He may want you to realize that you need to get some things right with Him. He will allow things to come into our lives to get us right with Him so we will cry out for help from Him. But before He will help us He will show us where we've gone wrong and give us opportunity to get it right. When you do you can rest assured that He will help you with whatever it is you're facing. He is a very present help in time of trouble (Psalm 46:1) and your only hope in that time of distress and turmoil. I know He is because I've cried out for help when I've been right with Him and He has helped me and I've also cried out for help when I've not been right with Him and He showed me where I was wrong and gave me opportunity to make it right and then helped me as I went through the consequences of my erring ways.
I hope this helps someone today!! I had this on my heart in praying for a couple of people this morning.
Thank God we serve a Savior Who loves us and cares for us even when we are in the wrong. He is always there waiting on us to make things right with Him. I love you Lord!!
