I lift my eyes to the hills – where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
An excerpt from Come Away My Beloved by Frances J. Roberts
“Always turn to Him before you look to any other source for assistance.”
We all face difficulties in our lives, when you do, where do you turn for help? Frances Roberts answers this question so clearly – we should turn to Him! When we find ourselves in a difficult situation, whether we feel overwhelmed, ill-equipped or frustrated, there is only one source of true help – the Lord. Our natural instinct may be to panic and seek help from other people. Wouldn’t it be great if at first, we sought help from the One who could give us peace and who is ultimately in control of our situation? We tend to turn to the Lord and seek His help when we are desperate and out of other options. God wants us to be so close to Him that our natural instinct is to turn to Him before turning to our friends and family or relying on our own strength. What are you facing right now that you need His help? Take a few minutes and turn to Him, cry out to your Heavenly Father for His help and see what He does! Your situations may not change, but the peace you will experience in the midst of them will change the way you handle it. May today be the day that you seek His help.
