Kingdom Fatherhood: My Father My Help

Psalm 46:1
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

A father gave his son a task to do and he told him ” you can use all the resources and help at your disposal to finish the task”
The son got to work and soon enough frustration started kicking in because the task was almost impossible. He tried to find ways to get the task accomplished using all the resources he thought he had at his disposal but to no avail. Finally he went back to his father disappointed and defeated and he said he could not get the task done.
His father asked him ” Did you use all the help at your disposal?”
The young man said ” yes dad I did and I still could not get the job done!”
His father said ” I have been here all along and never once have you asked for my help!”

One of the best things you get under the covering of a father is help.
God is our refuge and he is also our help. The bible says he is an ever present help in times of trouble. When Jesus was about to ascend back to heaven he said he would ask the father to send us a helper who would be with us forever.

As a child of God you and I always need to be aware that our Father’s help is always at our disposal. He is an ever present help in times of trouble.
All we have to do is ask and believe that his help is available for us. Remember he is all powerful and nothing is impossible with him.
We never have to walk alone,his help is always at hand.

Reflective thoughts.
Are you like the boy in our story always going at it alone oblivious of that your father’s help is at your disposal?

In what area of your life currently would you say you need help right now?

Ask your heavenly father for help, he is an ever present help in times of trouble.
