Ask for Help


1 Peter 5:6-7 says “So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”

When was the last time you asked someone for help? We carry so much on our shoulders that we have become numb. God did not create us to carry such heavy loads. 

God tells us to give all our worries and cares over to Him for He cares about everything that bothers you and I. Imagine with me for a moment think back to a day where you were having a bad day, and you just wanted to vent, and you did so.

How did it make you feel? One thing is for sure you got it off your chest, right? When you and I go to God with our cares we are releasing all that turmoil over to Him.

When we do not ask for help, we are hurting ourselves. And in the process, we are hurting others rather we realize it or not. Others become to victim of the loads we carry around. We are what I call a fire-cracker ready to go off at any given time.

We cannot make it on our own we need Him, so ask for help do not try to do it in your own strength.

Come to Him and bring your petitions unto the Lord He desires to hear from you this day.

    Yes, I agree. I think there’s a thin line. To know when to ask for help and when not to. Some are quick to help, and others aren’t. I always ask God to lead. That way, I know when, who, and how to ask for help. Great article!🙏

    Oh yes, I agree with that. I also have learned through the years that I am not as hesitant at asking like I use to be. For a person can only say yes or no.. I think what stops us from asking for help is the fear of being rejected.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts Zina.

  3. Hey Sis! It’s a beautiful thing to know that we can go to Him and unload the stress of our day! It reminds me of the song, “What a Friend We Have in Jesus!” Because He cares just that much! Thanks for reminding us! Wonderful Jesus!
