Why Should I Get Help?

February 18, 2021

Life can be challenging, no doubt about it. We live in a time when ever-mounting responsibilities surround us on all sides. Our schedules couldn’t be more packed, and it can be quite difficult to find moments to rest. Not only that, but life is not always kind. Even as a believer, trials happen in life. There will come times when we encounter tragedy in our lives and in the lives of those we love. All of these things pile up eventually, and before we know it, we find ourselves lost.

Please know that you never have to face these burdens alone. God created us for relationship, and He always intended that we be there for one another in the darkest of times. God has given some the gift of being wise counselors. The benefits of seeking help from such people are invaluable. There is no need to hold on to pride: it is a humble heart that finds restoration and healing.

Romans 12:5 reads, “We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other” (NLT). That is a powerful statement, showing how important our unity is to God. As members of the same body, we are there to lift each other up when we falter. There is no shame in asking for help. Together, as brothers and sisters in Christ, we are stronger. We can only do so much on our own power, but we can accomplish anything as the body of Christ.

Be honest with yourself when you are struggling. Don’t attempt to hide behind pride and self-reliance. Pride is a barricade to healing and growth, but the section you let your walls down, you will find the restoration you so desperately need. Remember that God works through others, so through a wise counselor, you can encounter the healing power of Christ.
