Have you ever helped a child with a school project—perhaps your child, or grandchild, or godchild, or niece, or nephew?
Is it me? Or is it that when the teacher gives the child a project, it feels like the teacher is also giving you the project?
It’s the child’s project. But you help the child with it. You ensure that the project isn’t a hot mess—that it’s neat and presentable. You provide the glue, and the scissors, and the construction paper, and the paper plates, and the clay, and the paint, and the markers, and the popsicle sticks, and the paperclips, and the tissue paper, and the shoe boxes, and the crayons.
Likewise, when it comes to your life, God makes sure that you have everything you need. It’s your life. But God is there to help you with it. God provides the supplies—the strength, and the hope, and the grace, and the peace, and the power.
So when life happens, when trouble comes, when adversity strikes, when you’re confronted with a major decision, you can save yourself a lot of trouble by calling on God for help.
