Doing It Without Help

https://youtu.be/j7DtKOrYMCE

 

(Isaiah 54:2-3) “Enlarge the location of your tent, let the curtains of your dwellings be stretched wide, and don’t hold back. Lengthen your cords; strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right hand and to the left, and your descendants will possess the nations and will populate the deserted towns.”

(Romans 1:14) “Both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to wise and to foolish people, I am a debtor.”

(2 Corinthians 7:5-6) “For even when we came to Macedonia, our bodies had no rest. We suffered in a number of ways. Outwardly there were conflicts, inwardly there were fears. Yet God, who comforts those who feel miserable, comforted us by the arrival of Titus,”

(Romans 16:3-4) “Greet Prisca and Aquila, who work with me for the Messiah Jesus, and who risked their necks for my life. I am thankful to them, and so are all the churches among the gentiles.”

 

One of the biggest reasons for guaranteed failure is being too proud to ask for help. The same goes for getting lost, if not, ask any woman with a husband who would rather drive around in circles instead of stopping and asking for directions. Like it or not, no matter who you are, someone has helped you get where you are.

There is no shame in getting help, physically, financially, or emotionally to achieve your goals in life. They say that behind every successful man is a woman, who has been by his side when no one else believed in him, who has quietly received all his negative words that boil out from a frustrated heart, or when anyone has pointed him out to be a looser, she has shown him that he is a winner because she chooses to be by his side.

My uncle told me once, “You don’t choose which family you are born into, but you do have some say in which family you get married into”. Sure, his advice was about marrying up in social status, but I applied it to make sure I marry into a family that followed Christ.

Apostle Paul openly thanked all those who God used to help him complete his mission. This included churches and their offerings, young men and women who walked alongside him and risked their lives, and even unbelievers who might disagree with the teachings of Christ.

Pride can stop us from receiving from God what He has prepared for us as a gift. Salvation is a gift that many would rather work for instead of receiving by grace, through the death of Jesus on the Cross. Most of us would rather steal, cheat and lie instead of asking for help and risk being insulted or humiliated. God is waiting for you to open your mouth and ask Him.

 

 

Be careful! When you reject a word, council, a helping hand, or even an offering, you might be rejecting God and His provision.
