Don’t Hide From God – He Wants To Help
Revelation 3:20 – “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.
This shows one awesome characteristic of Christ, something He will always do in love, and that’s to reach out to those who need Him. However, this is dependent on our response. Christ will always knock on our doors, it’s not a call for salvation per se, I mean the prophesies were directed toward the church which had believers in them, but he’ll knock on the doors of our hearts in that He’ll always make help available, and it’s left to us to receive from Him.
As a believer, whenever issues arise in your life either struggles with addiction or provision, your response should not be to run away from God or the church, but recognise that Christ is always going to be at the door ready to come in with help. Many people abandon prayer which in itself makes power available (this was discussed in the digest series the act of prayer…you should check it out if you haven’t seen it), and then they turn toward natural methods such as worry and over thinking. Pray about it and give Jesus the room in that situation.
It’s also a point to note that this is also a call to act and walk in love. Christ lives in you too, and this same love flows through you, so you should be available to help others who may need your help…this isn’t just about financial help but also regarding encouragement and motivation to grow spiritually.
James 5:16 – Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.
Simply put, believers should be able to ask each other for help even with issues regarding sin. We are supposed to be free with each other. Be the person who’ll be open and share faults or issues you need help with, and also be the person that can be trusted to help others when they have issues bothering them.
Hebrews 10:33 – Sometimes you were exposed to public ridicule and were beaten, and sometimes you helped others who were suffering the same things.
The scripture above shows that it has always been a culture among believers to help each other. So don’t run away from God or the church, help has been made available, run toward Him, there is help and you’ll receive in abundance…encouragement, provision, support, direction, you name it. God bless you.
Thank you Jesus for making help available, and for making me an avenue through which help can flow through as well.
