“Give us aid against the enemy, for human help is worthless.” Psalm 108:12.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; Job 5, Psalm 108, and Acts 10-11.
My first call must be to God.
I must be in a tuned-in relationship with Him.
I shouldn’t go through a list of counterfeit gods before asking The God for help.
I believe that I lose touch with God in the small things of life. I decide that those things are my “size” and I can handle them on my own. That thinking will mushroom into more and more independent actions. Before I know it, God becomes a very late resort.
My goal is to have an on-going relationship with God. When I go through the easiest day I have ever had, I want to be close to Him the whole way. When I go through the worst day of my life, I want to be close to Him the whole way. There cannot be a variance in our relationship. He is willing to do His part. Will I do the same?
“Lord, forgive me for relying on counterfeit gods. You are the One I must rely on. I need You every second. Take me over. Prick my conscience when I am loosening my grip on You. I love You, Lord.”
