Asking God to help us stop doing what is wrong

Daily Thought

Your Word for 17 April 2024

Proverbs 4:12
‘When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble.’

We need God. We need God’s help in our lives.  There are times when we come to the end of ourselves and we need the supernatural help that only God can give.  It is great to know that God is able to help, but it is an even greater joy to know that He wants to help us.  Is there any area of your life in which you need God’s help right now?  Have you asked Him to help you?  Why not give it a try.
You can ask God to help you stop doing what is wrong.  This may include bad habits or a sin that continually confronts us.  It may also be a weakness that we are continually battling with.

Psalm 19:13 and keep me from deliberate wrongs; help me to stop doing them.

I knew a man who battled with a bad temper. It destroyed his marriage and he seemed to have no control over it.  He knew it was wrong but yet he could not get the better of it. We can ask God to help us with issues like this in our lives.
