“Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He will do it!” Psalm 37:5
On many occasions I have decided to rearrange the furniture in my living room, bedroom or any other room. I often did this by myself. Some pieces would be heavy but I figured I could manage. Then years ago I purchased furniture sliders and it made every new arrangement much easier! Dave would come home and ask me why I didn’t wait for him to help me. Well, because I didn’t want to wait. I didn’t feel I really needed help. I could do it by myself. I had other helps like those furniture sliders. I really didn’t need his help.
How often do you and I feel the same about asking our Heavenly Father for help? Really Lord, I can handle this on my own. I’ve got this Lord, I’ll just use this tool over here and you won’t have to get involved. Why do we so often refuse to ask for help? For me the answer is the same as in the illustration I shared about moving furniture….I don’t want to wait….I can do it myself.
How easy it is to take matters into our own hands rather then leaving them in His. How easy it is to rush to get it done rather then letting His timing be perfect. What help do you need today? Why not ask Jesus for His help? No job is too small or too large for Him to handle for you!
