The eternal God of the universe wants to be your close, personal friend. He longs to be your King. Your Glory. Your Support. To become your personal God.
King David knew the Lord intimately, and called God “my help” (Psalm 22:19). When David’s enemies were pursuing him, David turned to his personal God. He pleaded with the Lord for deliverance. Begged God to help him overcome his enemies’ schemes.
This kind of prayer - one from a desperate heart of faith - is the prayer God most loves to hear from His children. Help me, Lord! Why? Because it proves our helplessness. Our dependence on Him. Our acknowledgement that God alone is our strength.
When we cling to God for help, we’re showing our need for Him. And what’s interesting is that it’s often when we reach desperation - a place of complete surrender - that God responds to our prayers.
Do you need help today? Call upon the Lord! He is your personal God. Pray to Him: “Daddy, I need help. I can’t do this on my own. I am suffering and I need you to intervene. To help me. I surrender this situation to you, and trust you to deliver me, in Your time, and in Your way.”
Call upon the Lord to help you today.
God is your personal help in times of need.
