Have you ever been helpless in life? Where it seems like all your dependable source of withdrawing strength and help has disappeared. Well the good news is that you are not alone, I am helpless too. Being helpless in the presence of God is a great place to be because you know that God is your Source and Helper. To receive help from God you have to acknowledge in all honesty and transparency that you are helpless. Therefore circumstances and situations would occur to test your ability to lean onto God the Author and Finisher of your faith
I will lift up my eyes to the hills from whence comes my help? 2 My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth Psalm 122:1-2
Do not focus on your problems or dilemma but lift up your eyes and look up to God who will always make a way where there seems to be no way. For every challenge there is an opportunity for God to manifest Himself beyond your expectations. Sometimes God would allow you to utilize all your opportunities to a point of helplessness so you can learn to trust and depend completely on Him. Once again whether it is the marriage crises or problems at work. Maybe you are just about to be evicted or your property repossessed. Could it be that you are at the point of hopelessness the last but stop to aborting your dreams and ambitions? Whatever it is God is always on time, He turns up at the right time so do not give up on God because He has not given up on you.
At every point of being helpless in His presence, I have learnt to cry out for help and acknowledge that I truly and desperately need God’s help. In intercessory prayer and confessing God as my Helper, Source and Provider, He hears my cry and intervenes on my behalf for His namesake
But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 NKJV
Waiting on God for your needs and desires of your heart to be met requires trusting God and depending completely on Him to renew your strength as you take those steps of faith with overflowing expectations. If God handed power and control over to you for one second, He knows what you would do. This time, pass the control switch to God the Author and Finisher of your faith for Him to take total control.
Being helpless in His presence means crucifying your flesh, passions and desires to enter into a new level of relationship where you enquire of Him for the next step. Do not try to figure it all out, communicate in dialogue with God on what to do next, how to overcome that situation that is weighing you down. God loves you so much that He wants to know how you are feeling today as you let go from an open transparent heart.
