"Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? I raised thee up under the apple tree: there thy mother brought thee forth: there she brought thee forth that bare thee."
(Song of Solomon 8:5 KJV)
We all have something that causes us to want to lean on or get help from someone more knowledgeable, such as Our Awesome God. It may be something we know nothing about or have failed to overcome in the past, and we need someone to help us. Now, being a human, we don't want to admit that we are fearful of failure with this problem we have, so we try to get information from someone else without them knowing or we read up on the subject. In short, we do almost everything possible to keep from admitting we need help. Have you ever done that? Pride is awful!
Someone was praying the other day and they ended their prayer with "Oh, Lord help support us on every leaning side!" Immediately my attention was caught, this person was admitting they needed some help to keep them out of trouble. Their "leaning sides" needed support and he was admitting it by appropriately asking Our Awesome God for that support. This was a good person to know! And that name will be remembered!
Do you have a "leaning side?" Can you admit it and ask Our Awesome God for help? If you don't know God it is time you did. Seek a Holy Bible with no additions, such as a King James or a New King James Version, and a church that preaches and teaches that Jesus Christ died for you, taking your sins upon Himself and arose the third day to sit by God, interceding for you when you sin. If we do know Him we should be spending more time on our knees asking God for help and then using the help that He provides, whether it is strength, providing a person more knowledgeable in the subject or giving you the knowledge in some other way, He will provide. God is our Father and He is waiting for us to stop struggling and just ask Him. He loves you! He is my beloved for it brings me peace and a warm feeling of love.
