Psalm 86:5

Verse: O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive, so full of unfailing love for all who ask for help.”

Insight: When we ask for help from the Lord, we can know how he will respond. I recently was overwhelmed with a few projects but I didn’t want to ask for help because I wanted to take care of it. Have you been there? I was surprised how well those that cared about me responded when I finally said I needed help. They were happy to do so, because they loved me. How much more is this true with the one who created us? Ask for help, and he is so ready to do so!

Prayer: God, I so often try to do life on my own. I go into a mode where I think I can handle it all only to find that I just simply can’t. When I think of it, I steal the opportunity to be blessed by your forgiveness and love when I don’t ask for help. So today, I ask that you will lead my steps and help me to be righteous in your eyes. I fall short and I need your love and forgiveness. Thank you for how you love and care for me. In Jesus name, amen.
