It can be difficult to ask for help in times of need in our lives. There’s something within most of us that is hesitant or resistant to allow others into our lives to help us. Sometimes, it’s an unwillingness to be vulnerable with others. Other times, it’s simply fear.
Fear not only can cause us to reject the help and assistance of others, but also it can cause us to reject the help and nearness of God. Fear can paralyze our emotional and spiritual life, which could lead us to reject the help of the Lord.
God is our helper and all our strength comes from Him. In our moments of fear, we can trust Him and rely on His strength to help us and sustain us. When you are struggling with fear and are tempted to attempt to find that strength in yourself, remember the Lord. He is for you and He will uphold you with His strength.
