Give us help from trouble, For the help of man is useless. Through God we will do valiantly, For it is He who shall tread down our enemies. Psalm 108:12-13 NKJV

What does it mean to lean on Me for help instead of people? 

From birth you need the help of others to survive. I am not against the idea of people helping others. The body of My Son is designed to nurture, buildup, encourage and edify itself. People need one another.

People will disappoint you, sometimes when you feel like you need it the most. Other times, someone will grab your hand and guide you when you are incapable of finding your way forward. People helping people weave a fabric of trust and faithfulness to help in hard times and clothe yourself in dignity. I created Eve because it was not good for Adam to be alone. You need the help of one another.

I ask again, What does it mean to lean on Me for help instead of people?

It’s following Me for your next step. It’s listening for My voice for direction when your back is against the wall and you can’t see which way to move forward. It’s acknowledging your frailty to come up with an answer to the difficulty you are facing and you cry out, “Father, have mercy on me!”. 

It’s the submitting of your plans, your money, your time to Me as the author and finisher of your faith. I will lead you, not as a task master, but as a loving Father. I am not in need of your money or your time for Myself. But I can redeem all of those things for you and for others.

When you are in the habit of leaning upon Me, it is easier to hear My voice when you call out on the day of trouble. Yet, even when you have rejected Me for years, I am still listening to your cry for help. I take no delight in watching you suffer or experience times of struggling. My desire child is to let My blessing hover over you as the morning mist.

Stop trusting solely in your own wisdom and strength, though you have both. Learn to lean not on your own understanding, but acknowledge Me in all of your ways. 

With your voice call unto Me and I will answer. I will show you the way forward that is tailor made for your situation. I have the answer for victory. It starts with receiving my love. Let Me draw close to you. I am the Father who cares and will be with you on the day of trouble.

Whispers from Your Father, God
