Man can help you from time to time but not all the time. God is your most dependable helper. David in Psalm 121: 2 acknowledged this heavenly helper. We recall the biblical account of a boy in the parable of ‘The prodigal son (Luke 15:1-23). He compelled his father to prematurely give him the portion of his inheritance. Thereafter, he travelled to a far country, away from the watchful eyes of his parents, and in no time, squandered all his substance. He became a destitute and greatly in need of even food. He sought help from a rich man of that country, but received none. He humbly returned home, confessed his sins and received pardon and restoration from God and his father.
As a Christian youth, who has been your helper? Have you always received help from him/her each time you requested for help? No human helper is an alternative to God. God is the ultimate supplier of all you need; be it academic, physical, social, emotional or spiritual. Trust Him with all your heart, and seek Him always for “grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16).
CHALLENGE: Human help is limited.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to depend on you always.
