God’s Message: “Cursed is the strong one who depends on mere humans, Who thinks he can make it on muscle alone and sets God aside as dead weight. He’s like a tumbleweed on the prairie, out of touch with the good earth. He lives rootless and aimless in a land where nothing grows.” (Jeremiah 17:5-6 The Message)
The above referenced Scripture from the New Living Translation says that, when you try to make it on your own, you have “no hope for the future.”
Yep, sometimes I think I can handle it. But those moments are usually quickly followed by the realization that I need help.
I need help.
But I hate so badly to ask for the help I need. And when I don’t ask for the help, I tend to get overwhelmed and frustrated and discouraged and…….
You probably get what I am trying to say. Have you been there before? Hopeless?
Why do we forget that He promised to be there for us, to take our burdens, to help us, to never leave us!?! He cares for us!
“But blessed is the man who trusts me, God, the woman who sticks with God. They’re like trees replanted in Eden, putting down roots near the rivers – Never a worry through the hottest of summers, never dropping a leaf, Serene and calm through droughts, bearing fresh fruit in every season.” (Jeremiah 17:7-8, The Message)
