When Help Is Denied
“The impotent man answered him, sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me”.
John 5 : 7
Life can be very frustrating when you can’t find someone to help. It’s even more worst and fruitless when you can’t help either. Your feeling of failure leads you to depression, and depression is a major cause and first stage of mental sickness.
No man is an Island. We’re created to be an independent dependent being not a parasite. You need people, people needs you. That is why God said in Genesis 2 : 18; It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. In fact, in Ecclesiastes 4 verse 10, bible declare woe to him that is alone. Man in the understanding of God is not just a male man, but male and female.
Every human being need a helper, even an angel need help too – Daniel 10 : 13. You need people, not just people that are physically present with you, but emotionally, people who will be able to feel the feeling of your infirmity( challenges or situation). Not a miserable people like Eliphaz, Bildad or Zophar the friends of Job.
Our world today is of great multitude of billions of people filled with selfishness and self-centered attitude. The world is in dear need of people that are selfless, who will naturally care for the need of others. Our sense of natural affection is lost. We’re daily preoccupied with self without minding the need, joy, and happiness of others.
Where do I find help?
“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help”
Psalms 121 : 1
The man of Bethesda had great multitude around him, but these people are helpless in themselves one way or the other. They are helpless people made worse with selfishness.
Everybody in the world without exception needs help. Whether rich or poor, educated or illiterate, spiritual or carnal, we all need help. At this point, I’m helpless too, the only help I can render is to lead you to the Helper of the helpless, the Hope of the hopeless, the Self-Sufficient, and Self-Existing. The only faithful friend, he is the very present help in times of need. His name is Jesus, the only begotten Son of God. Turn to him today, he is willing to help you.
