Psalm 146:5 (NIV)

“Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord their God.” (Psalm 146:5; NIV)

Sometimes life can get hard. Sometimes life can get so hard, we can’t see a way out. But don’t despair. God has a plan that you may not even have thought of yet, to get you out of your troubles. The Bible says that those whose help is God are blessed. Even in the lack, the sickness, the loneliness, the depression, if God is your help and your hope, you are blessed. Why? Because the Almighty is your help. He has the final word in any situation; and He is on your side.

Tell God: You are my hope, God. You are my help. I can’t get myself out of these circumstances. I can’t find a way out. You alone are my hope and my help. I have nothing to give. I just want to receive from You, my almighty Almighty. Thank You that You will work this situation out for my good and the good of others. (Or, of course, in your own words.)
