Today’s Reading – Judges Chapters 10-12
“I don’t need any help”
“I can do it myself”
These famous words are often followed by these words, “Help! I’m stuck!”
It seems this is the same pattern the Israelites find themselves in. They are sure they can do better on their own. Then when they can’t: they cry out to God for help.
I love God’s response. It is a response every parent has used at one time another, “You don’t need my help. You can do it yourself.”
What I love about God is He doesn’t leave us in our state of misery, but gives us a way out. So when we acknowledge our errors, God is there to rescue us.
Need help? Stuck in place …
Try calling Jesus, but be prepared with your own response …
