I was discussing a problem at work and someone said – God helps those who help themselves - That’s in the Bible. I didn’t think about it until later when I was reading my Bible at home. I tried to find it in the Bible. I couldn’t find it. I went on the internet and couldn’t find it. Suddenly I realized it’s not in the Bible. It doesn’t say – God helps those who help themselves. In fact it is a very different story. God helps those who can’t help themselves. God helped those who didn’t even realize they needed help. God sees things differently than we see them. We think we have our own solutions to our problems. We have pride in our abilities. We think we know it all. Sometimes He allows us to fail in order to show that we need Him. All of us have problems. Sometimes we are at the end of our rope. We think there is nothing else to be done. It’s over. We have to give up our home. It’s time for the Bank to take over. We can no longer make payments. Maybe there is sickness in your family. Cancer is anawful disease of our time. The doctor gives you a few months to live. There are no treatments that will work. It’s too late. The cancer has taken over your entire body. No! It’s time for God’s grace. God’s grace is there for people who recognize they can’t help themselves. Are you feeling helpless today? Go to God’s throne of grace.
