HELP IS ON THE WAY
Help Is On The Way
You know why help always seem to be ‘on the way'? I think it's because we don't know how to be still. We pray, and ask for help, but before it reaches us we are on the other side of town. So, help makes an amazing adaptation and re-configures its route through a maze of people and circumstances, not to mention time, to reach us; and what do we do? Move again. If we can learn to be still, help will find us.
Remember the verse in the bible that says, "Be still, and know that I am God". Psalm 46:10.
That word ‘still' means to relax and be anxious for nothing. In another translation it says it this way, "Let go (of your concerns). Then you will know that I am God." God's Word - translation
Some of us are so busy in our daily lives that we have forgotten how to relax. We are running from this place to that place; from this person to that person; from this Church to that Church. Be Still! Can't you hear that voice echoing from deep inside you? How can you get help if you are not ‘still' long enough to receive it?
Did you know that in the mosaic tapestry of life everything has a place? There is human life, plant life, fish life, etc, etc, Plant life can't change to human life, and human life can't change to fish life. No life form can ‘move' from their station in life and become another life form. So it is in our spiritual life. We can't keep running from the spiritual to the natural and expect our help to find us. We tend to outrun our help, making it difficult to catch up to us. By the time it does, we will need more help.
Remember when Jesus took the disciples aside to rest? And He said to them," Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest awhile." (For there were many people coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.) Mark 6:31 ASV
We need to set some time aside to rest. Many times it is during our time of ‘rest' when our help catches up to us.
Are you still looking for a breakthrough? Is your help ‘still' on the way? Well maybe you should slow down and take some time to ‘rest." If you take a Sabbath away from your daily activities help will surely find you.
