Psalm 70:5 (NIV)
Yes, we always know when we are in need don’t we, but do we always turn to the one person who can always help us? I’m quite an independent person and don’t like to rely on anyone for anything, therefore if I’m honest with myself, with you and with God, I must admit that when I am in need, I often struggle on on my own, thinking things will get better.
Unsurprisingly things don’t normally get any better all by themselves! It’s only when I take my problems/burdens to God and leave them with Him, that I feel my needs are being answered.
The moral of this is, whenever we’re in need, turn to God right away and tell Him your problems and your needs, because He alone can answer your prayers!
