For most of us, asking for help is difficult. I really don't prefer it; some of you may not as well. Yet, God lets us know time and time again that we need help. After all, He refers to us most often as sheep — the most difficult and demanding of any livestock on earth. Admitting need is really about overcoming pride, not losing our strength ... ouch!

Here are some passages that I found comforting as I learned to depend on my Lord for help. Whatever your needs are today, take comfort from God and His Word.

When afraid Joshua 1; Isaiah 41
Bewildered Isaiah 55:8–9
Alone Psalm 13
Unsure of your direction Psalm 19; 37; 119
In suffering James 1; 1 Peter 1; 5; 2 Corinthians 1
Needing a promise from God Psalm 40
In weakness Psalm 18; 46
On a tough road Psalm 121
Doubt Lamentations 3
Seeking wisdom Proverbs (one chapter a day)
Authentic living James
Dear friend, let go of your desired independence, break the chains of pride, and search God's truth for whatever your needs may be.
