Psalms 79:9 -- On Strength and Seeking Help

"Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name’s sake."
Psalms 79:9

It is good to remember that we need help.  Perhaps it makes us look weak, or we feel that we *are* weak if we need help.  Those are lessons of the world however, and not the lessons of God.

God teaches us to ask for help, *every* time we are in need.  He doesn't teach us that we shouldn't need him, and he doesn't teach us that we need to buck up and deal with things alone.  He wants us to ask, and he wants to help.

Today, let's not listen to the lessons of the world, but instead listen to the lessons of God.  Let's not be ashamed of asking for help, or talking to a friend when we are in need.  Let's not see seeking assistance as weakness, for it is actually entirely the opposite.  Learning to seek assistance from God is spiritual strength.
