II Corinthians 12:15 ” So I will very gladly spend for you everything I have and expend myself as well. If I love you more, will you love me less?”

Natural human love expects something in return.  To sacrifice for you, you must first be really special to me, and then I also expect to be reciprocated for what I did.  But in this Scripture, Paul was willing to give it all…that I may be able to get you to God.  The real test here isn’t one’s willingness to teach or preach, but one’s willingness to serve.  Service to others takes our time, energy, and emotional strength.  It encroaches on our personal space…robs us of “me” time, and turns our carefully crafted schedules upside-down.  Expending yourself for the Gospel… helping, and supporting others is a thankless job by human estimation…but it’s counted as everything in the eternity of God.

Psalm 46:1 ” God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”

God is your helper.  He is not indifferent to your plight.  He is not just siting there watching you go through tough times, detached and uncaring about what’s happening.  It tells us in Psalm 18 that when David cried out to God for help, He reached down from on high and rescued him.  That’s called divine intervention by a ever-present, ever-loving God.  Whatever you’re going through today, know that the Lord is actively involved and is keenly aware of every detail.  Cry out to Him and He will respond.
