God Should Be Our First Resort Or Last?

Jan 8, 2018

Remember the days when we were in difficulties, we called our Relatives, we called our Friends, we tried to find the solution as per our own understanding, But when we are failed from every corner we Call God to rescue us.

Why ?…why God is on the Last priority to find solutions for our Problems…why we see here and there and find nobody, this we speak to ourselves..and say there is no shelter for me…We  Forget the creator of this universe creator of us.in Isaiah Isaiah 49:16  Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.

The Bible tells us that from centuries his chosen people to whom he released from the Bondage of Romans forgotten him and started over again in involving themselves in worshipping idols and lustful works.and when they got into trouble and difficulties they turned back to him for solutions.

If we look into the OT in 2 Chronicles 15:4-6  But when they in their trouble did turn unto the LORD God of Israel and sought him, he was found of them.And in those times there was no peace to him that went out, nor to him, that came in, but great vexations were upon all the inhabitants of the countries.And the nation was destroyed of nation, and the city of city: for God did vex them with all adversity. Read the complete chapter…they all were gathered and entered his covenant with their heart and soul to seek him….

In our present times the same kind of things happening to us as well.

In our lives, we give priority to those worldly things from which we will not gain anything.

But, what would have happened if we going to God have been first response instead of our last resort? What would be different in our lives if going to God was our first response?

If we read (2 Samuel 21:1) Israel was struck up in a famine which was lasted for three long years, and as a King Of Israel it was  King David’s responsibility to take care of his people..but as it was not there in the Bible for these three years what he was doing,but we can imagine that he might have formed plans to get resources to provide food  for his people but failed.the last resort for this problem was God for David. And if we read 2 Samuel 21:1 that he Prayed to God, and God listened to his prayer and the famine was over…

The situation of David for his people because of the Famine to provide food and other things was his people is somehow same as our present lives…

In a family where the Head of the family is responsible for his family needs.and if

and when we see

What Bible says for our own understanding Proverbs 3:5-6  “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”

It says Trust in Lord and

One more scripture from Psalm

Yes, our flesh and our heart may fail but God is the strength. Once we start giving priority to God in our lives and put him as our First resort, our lives start changing, when we see our face in mirror, our face will have  a shining light and that light is of God …because God says in scriptures, Numbers 6:25  “The LORD make his face shine upon thee and be gracious unto thee”.

In Another scripture from 2 Corinthians 4:6 “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”.

God has never forgotten it’s we humans who forget him, because we are selfish our love and trust are for worldly things and desires, on Humans, not the That Supreme power who created everything, how can we such so mean..and this worst quality of ours God knows very well.He always tries to speak to us, he always wanted us to come to him first not last…we are his children, how can a father deny his helping his children…

We all must trust, why King David says it in Psalms 16:8 “ I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.”

He also said that whenever I will in a way which is slippery and think that foot with slip his mercy and Grace hold me.read Psalms 94:18  “When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.”

When there’s no one else to turn to, you have God.” Isn’t that nice? He’s our safety net.God doesn’t want to be our safety net, He wants to be our support. He wants to carry us. Help us. Love us. Provide for us. We Should be our first resort not the last.
