Helpless Without Him
“I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.”
Have you wondered, in agony, why God is doing what He’s doing? Why He has delayed answering your prayer? Have you reacted to the delay by trying to help Him out and speed things up? Have you turned to . . . a doctor, a lawyer, a counselor, a friend, pop psychology, a neighbor’s sympathetic ear, or a popular TV talk show? Have you resorted to threats
or bargaining or manipulation until you’re totally exhausted? Have you come to the absolute end of your rope?
One reason God may be delaying His answer to your prayer and postponing His intervention in your situation is to bring you to the end of your own resources. Sometimes God waits in order to allow us time to exhaust every other avenue of help until we finally realize without any doubt or reservation that we are totally helpless without Him.
