Breaktime: Help Me Lord
Help Me Lord Come quickly to help me, my Lord and my Savior. Psalm 38:22
Now David can wait no longer and he needs God to come quickly. He needs. He needs him to be Lord of his life as he is weary of trying to do life apart from God. He needs saving. He tried to save himself which led to further separation.
Sin tries to save itself as it wants and desires to stay alive. Sin is the quicksand we step in and can slowly sink away in life. Jesus is the Savior that pulls us out and leads us through life, staying clear from sinking. We daily practice having God be Lord of our life which means we walk closely. We live in relational to God because we are His sons and daughters. HE created us in his image and all of life should hunger for His presence.
Just like David, we realize sin hurts the unity we all crave with God. We all need God to daily remind us who we are and living close with Him strengthens the realization that we are His. We all long for belonging and sin brings confusion to our true self. We don’t have to wait to call out to God, it is an urgent matter when sin is distorting who we are. The Savior is our salvation and affliction may be the instrument by which we are led back to Him.
