Full Reliance On God !!!!!!

23 May
Full Reliance On God !!!!!!

For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper. (Psalm 72:12)

The needy cries; what else can he do? His cry is heard of God; what else need he do? Let the needy reader take to crying at once, for this will be his wisdom. Do not cry in the ears of friends, for even if they can help you it is only because the Lord enables them. The nearest way is to go straight to God and let your cry come up before Him. Straightforward makes the best runner: run to the Lord and not to secondary causes.

“Alas!” you cry, “I have no friend or helper.” So much the better; you can rely upon God in both capacities-as without supplies and without helpers. Make your double need your double plea. Even for temporal mercies you may wait upon God, for He careth for His children in these temporary concerns. As for spiritual necessities, which are the heaviest of all, the Lord will hear your cry and will deliver you and supply you.

O poor friend, try your rich God. O helpless one, lean on His help. He has never failed me, and I am sure He will never fail you. Come as a beggar, and God will not refuse you help. Come with no plea but His grace. Jesus is King; will He let you perish of want? What! Did you forget this?

    Great reminder that The Lord alone is faithful to help his children.For everyone who has been forsaken by family and friends it is reassuring to know there is One who will never leave us or forsake us!
    Have a blessed weekend Levi .

    The words here are healing. I am so glad you shared this. A phrase came to my mind. It had to do with “times of refreshing”. I think I will go look it up. God Bless you.
