He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. Psalm 40:2 (NLT)
Jesus will help us when we call on Him. He’ll give us wisdom, strength, courage—whatever we need to move forward, change, or overcome. But here’s the thing; we need to do our part too.
He’ll help us conquer a besetting sin, but we need to run when temptation comes knocking.
He’ll give us courage, but we need to fill our minds with courage-building truth.
He’ll help us accomplish a task, but we need to stop procrastinating.
Jesus will steady us, but we need to “walk along.”
Action Step: Have you been waiting for Jesus to help you with something? What’s your role in seeing this happen?
“Father God, give me the where-with-all to walk along the path set before me. I trust You to steady me as I go. Amen.”
