Wednesday of Holy Week

The Lord God helps me; therefore I have not been disgraced. Isaiah 50:7

God does help us, but we are too busy living a different life to notice. The only time we pay attention is when we do something to seek his help.

He helps us in so many ways, that are too numerous to count. When we don't have God in our lives, we tend to be ashamed. We side with those who ridicule, hurt, judge, bully others. Don't we walk away from situations where someone is ridiculed after laughing with them and shake our heads and wonder why we did that. It is in those little moments that we are guided to learn that what we did was wrong.

The Lord God helps us, this is what he does when we attempt to disgrace others. He nudges our conscience when we do wrong. We end up not disgracing ourselves when we heed His help.After all aren't we the ones who look silly for our actions, when we get angry, persecute others, judge them, bully them, ridicule them.
