“Please! Rescue me from my brother ‘Esav! I’m afraid of him, afraid he’ll come and attack me, without regard for mothers or children.”
Genesis 32:12 CJB
Here we see Jacob, really being honest about his fear and unworthiness. Even though he is trying to appease his brother, knowing deep down it will fail without the LORD!
“Call on Me when you are in trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor Me.”
Psalm 50:15 CJB
Don’t try to take care of your problems first, instead call on the LORD, seek His will and direction in any situation!
“On the day of my trouble I am calling on You, for You will answer me.”
Psalm 86:7 CJB
We all go through desperate situations from time to time! The first thing we need to do is call on the LORD! Don’t rely on our own understanding, because it usually makes the situation worse.
Have a blessed day!
