Help me, Lord my God; save me according to your unfailing love. Psalm 109:26
Going through a difficult time is a common occurrence for many people. As they are going through the tough time, some will seek help. In the process of seeking help, they seek it because of who they are or what they do.
It has been seen many times when a person of high position or popularity will get in to some trouble. When approached about it, he will often ask the person if he knows who he is. It is about the position or title that the person wants to be removed from trouble or helped.
During great disasters some have been known to fight for help to be saved because of their position. They are using their influence to gain the needed help.
David had been going through a very tough time with many different enemies. He cries out to God for help. He wants God to save him, but based upon His love, not his own merits.
Every believer will have times of extreme difficulties. During these times he will need help. It is common for him to cry out to God for help to remove him from the situation or receive a saving from the enemy.
As some cry out to God they will be like many in the world and tell God that they need to be saved because of all the good things that they have done. This does not show any humility, but is boastful and filled with sinful pride.
The believer must realize that he is only deserving of death and punishment. God does not have to save him. However, God is full of love and mercy. Seeking God for help based off of His love and mercy puts the focus on God and not self.
You will have difficult times in which you will need God’s help. Throughout scripture it tells you to cry out to God for help. As you cry out to Him for help, do not focus it on yourself, but upon God. Reach out to His great love and mercy.
As God helps you, it is not because of what you have done, but because of His great love. Jesus did not remove your sins because of who you are or what you have done, but because of His love.
God’s love compels Him to help you and build you up. Focus on Him, and not on self.
I pray today that you will know God’s love for you; that you will focus your life on God; that God will help you remove any pride in your life; and that you will lean on God’s greatness to meet all of your needs.
