Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

When problems arise, society will tell us to “get dirty” and handle the situation ourselves. Religious people will tell us to help ourselves because, “God helps those who help themselves.” Neither solution will be successful. The first person we should contact is God.

We should expect God to do it all. We should expect God to give us a solution to our problems, a plan of action for that solution, people to help us along the pathway to that solution, AND comfort/peace as we wait on the manifestation of our solution. It’s not one or the other. If we can’t rely on God to be our everything, how can we truly call Him our Father, our Comforter, and The Way?

In whatever situation we face, look to God, believe, and expect ALL the help we need to come from Him.
