Should it turn left or right? Come to think of it, I have never turned the water off at the street. The valve was hard to turn as well. I got frustrated, and while looking down into the dirty, yucky, spider enticing hole in the ground I said, “God, I need help.” I literally looked up, from the hole, and down the street, about three houses away, was a city water department truck. I tell you the truth, the truck was not there when I started the task. I walked to the truck and the employee drove down to my house and helped me.
Then, with the water turned off, I was ready to remove a leaking valve in the bathroom. I could not get the valve to come off. Again frustrated, “God, I need help again.” I called a place, I trusted, to get a number for a plumber they trusted. No one could come out that day unless it was after hours which would have cost a lot! Then, the woman on the phone transferred my call to what I pictured was a grey haired pipe wrench turner wearing blue denim overalls. I explained my situation and he told me what type of plumbing I had and how to fix it. It worked. No charge, even though I called back and offered to pay for their knowledge.
God does know you, and He sees where you are, and what you going through, but more than that, He cares.
He wants to help you, and He wants to bless you. What loving father doesn’t want to do good things for their children? If you have accepted him, then there should nothing holding you back from asking for help in your time of need, even for every day stuff. Here is a scripture of God’s promise to us:
“If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God,
“I’ll get you out of any trouble.
I’ll give you the best of care
if you’ll only get to know and trust me.
Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times;
I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party.
I’ll give you a long life,
give you a long drink of salvation!” Psalm 91:14-16 The Message (MSG)
“Hey God, Thanks!”
