God helps the helpless

Because You have been my help, therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice. Psalm 63:7.

I have had people tell me, “Pastor Prince, please pray for me. I can’t see a way out of the mess I am in.

I know that this whole thing is my fault. Right now, I don’t even know whether God will hear my prayers.”

If you think about it, a whole lot of our troubles are of our own making.

But it is when we deserve the punishment and not the blessing that we can receive grace — the undeserved favor and unmerited help of God!


When we stop trying to be deserving of God’s help, we find God more than willing to be our Savior.

But when we continue to try to work things out, we are trying to be our own saviors.

God will say, “Save yourself because I can’t help you when you don’t need My help.”

If you say, “My problem is that I am weak.” God says, “That is not a problem. I am your strength.”

If you say, “Lord, my face is the problem. I am ugly.” God says, “My face will shine on yours. I am your glory.”

If you say, “Lord, I am the problem. I am a nobody.” God says, “I will make you a somebody.”

Unfortunately, many of us are still trying to help ourselves, thinking that for certain matters, we don’t really need God.


But God says, “Without Me, you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)

Do we really believe that?

Or do we believe that without Him,

we can still do some things to help ourselves?


” Only when we realize that we can do nothing, and are nothing in and of ourselves, can we do all things through Christ who strengthens us “!
(Philippians 4:13)

Then, we will see the Undeserved, Unmerited help and Favor of God deliver us from every evil!
