You And I Need Help

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Exodus 18:17,18
Moses’s father-in-law replied, what you are doing is not good. You and these people who come to you will only wear yourselves out. The work is too heavy for you. You cannot handle it alone.

O-bservation:

Perhaps Moses’ father-in law Jethro, could be called one of the first mental health proponents in history. He observed his son-in-law Moses as he would sit all day listening to the problems of individual people and then passing judgement on them as to what they should do, and finally Jethro said, “This is not good! You’re only going to wear yourself out!” By this I believe he was saying, “You’re getting ready for a breakdown!”

A-pplication:

Have you ever felt over worked? Have you felt in your mind and body that you couldn’t take it another day? Many people feel this way but don’t ask anyone for help. Moses was just pushing through his near breakdown when thankfully his father-in-law gave him some advice. Moses implemented Jethro’s advice and carried on with a lighter load. If you will start by calling on the Lord today and then ask others around you, God will help you. I only say this because, “You And I Need Help!”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,
Thank you this AM that through the years when I thought I couldn’t go another step you always sent someone to help lighten my load. I’ve needed you help so much and so does my friend hearing me right now. Pleas Jesus bring them help. Amen
