Lord, Help!

Recommended Posts

I was so happy for my friend when she told me she was going to be a mum! Together we counted the days until the birth. But when the baby suffered a brain injury during delivery, my heart broke and I didn't know how to pray. All I knew was who I should pray to=God. He is our Father, and He hears us when we call.

 

I knew that God was capable of miracles. He brought Jabirus's daughter back to life (Luke 8:49-55) and in so doing also healed the girl of whatever disease that robbed her of life. So I asked Him to bring healing for my friend's baby too.

 

But what if God doesn't heal? I wondered. Surely He doesn't lack the power. Could it be He doesn't care? I thought of Jesus's suffering on the cross and the explanation that "God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). Then I remembered the questions of Job and how he learned to see the wisdom of God as shown in the creation around him (Job 38-39).

 

Slowly I saw how God calls us to Him in the details of our lives. In God's grace, my friend and I learned together what it means to call on the Lord and to trust Him-whatever the outcome.
