Even God has help.
"Praise the Lord, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word. Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will."
- Psalm 103:20-21 (New International Version)
The other day, the Holy Spirit dropped the thought "even God has help" into my spirit. It was shortly after a conversation I had with someone about the necessity of asking for help and how we don't do it very well as people and as entrepreneurs. I marinated on why He chose to drop that thought into my spirit for a while. Especially because, the more I thought about it, the more I didn't understand why He chose to create angels to help Him out in the first place. I mean, He's God. If anybody can actually do "all the things" it's Him. But, for whatever reason, He chose not to.
As I sat and contemplated why, He gave me an illustration a little while later to help me understand. Someone asked to help me carry something and I basically was like, sure if you want (knowing I wanted that help lol). The thing they did for me was so quick and simple and, true enough, I didn't NEED it but it was nice to have. That's when I saw it.
God doesn't NEED the help either but maybe it's nice for Him to have it too. Maybe also, in giving Himself help, He's actually loving on Himself a little bit. Practicing a little self-care. And, in doing so, showing us the standard of how we should approach things too.
This gathered me so much! Because not only do we need to get better at ASKING for help, but we also need to get better at RECEIVING it. Let people help you! If someone is asking to help you, say "yes, thank you!" If they didn't mean it, they shouldn't have asked and that's not your problem 🤷🏾♀️ Help is obviously a good thing because our Father created it—even for Himself—so utilize it every chance you get.

- Google "scriptures about angels" and look at all that He's able to accomplish with their help. Then remember that you were created in His image and therefore can create the help you need too so that you can accomplish all the things.
- Hebrews 1:14→ while we're on the subject of angels, keep in mind that they were created to help YOU too. Put them to work!
