Help God!

This morning I’ve been reading Romans 10.  It’s pretty awesome especially in The Message version.

Trusting God to shape the right living in us…versus living by the rule book.  Rule books are hard to live by and He doesn’t need us to change to love us.  He loves us the way we are and He will change us from the inside out.  That’s why I still love my husband.  He knows the rules, he knows the way he should be living and I know I can’t change him.  God’s going to have to change His heart. That is the only way he will change into the man I need him to be…therefore I just have to trust God.

It’s the word of faith that welcomes God to go to work and set things right for us.  This is the core of our preaching.  Say the welcoming word to God – ‘Jesus is my Master’- embracing, body and soul, God’s work of doing in us what he did in raising Jesus from the dead.  That’s it.  You’re not ‘doing’ anything; you’re simply calling out to God, trusting him to do it for you.  That’s salvation.  With your whole being you embrace God setting things right.

Just what I’ve been saying…God will set it right…not only my salvation but my whole life.

Scripture reassures us, ‘No one who trusts God like this – heart and soul – will ever regret it.’  It’s exactly the same no matter what a person’s religious background may be; the same God for all of us, acting the same incredibly generous way to everyone who calls out for help, “Everyone who calls, ‘HELP GOD!!!!!!!’ gets help.”

HELP GOD!!!! …gets help.  I’ve given up on human abilities.  I’ve come to a dead end, no hope in humanity kinda of end, the hopelessness that leads me no where else but to God.  All I can do is give up and trust God.  He’s going to take care of me.
