You Can't Make It Alone

God Loves You - by Gilbert Sommert

Every man needs God. Someone may try to challenge that statement, but the fact remains, every person is dependent on God. You may not be consciously dependent on Him, yet without His help and power you can do nothing. One may not be conscious at all of the elements around us, nevertheless these elements are necessary for life and the benefits we receive are there. A blind person may not be conscious of an approaching friend, yet his friend may be very near to him. A child may not understand why the nurse gives him a prick with the needle and he may squirm at the very appearance of another one, but that innoculation is given for his own benefit.

The Bible says, "For in Him we live and move, and have our being," Acts 17:28. Without God there is no life and no energy. He is the very Source of life and every good thing you enjoy comes because of the goodness of God.

Many people live as though they are totally independent of God. It is possible to exist without praying or giving thanks to God, at least for a while. But everyone who endeavors to go through life without God is the loser. There is an emptiness in every man until he lets Christ inside. And in the hour of desperation nearly everyone calls upon God.

A young lady wrote an essay, trying to prove that there is no God. She did so well that she received an award for the best essay on that subject. When she was asked how she did so well, she remarked, "I sure prayed hard about it."

There has been a time in your life when you have prayed or you will pray some time. There are times when all of us need help beyond our power. The man who drinks resorts to the bottle for extra help. Some people are able to be more calm and at ease when they smoke. Many have turned to drug addiction to give them a lift. But such things as liquor, tobacco and drugs really only bring temporary relief and help. The source of real and lasting help is to be found only in God.

You cannot go through life depending on your own energy, and your own abilities. You need God. It is God who gives you the energy and ability you now possess and you will find greater energy if you seek Him and trust in God. Yet many people get along somehow without calling upon God for help. Some men think it is a sign of weakness to surrender to Jesus Christ and seek Him. The statement is sometimes made, "religion is good for women." While it is true that there are more women than men who go to church regularly, it is also true that there are more men in prison than women. There are more men who are alcoholics than women.

Jesus was a man among men to such an extent that when Pilate the governor said, "Behold the man," everyone knew to whom he made reference. Even Jesus' enemies said, "Never man spake like this man." Jesus spoke more boldly than any other man. He performed greater miracles than anyone else. His teachings were so sound, reasonable, and helpful that many of the laws of nations are still built upon the principles which He laid down. You and I cannot improve upon the way of life set forth by the Saviour who came from heaven to bring us to Himself. The teachings of Christ have permeated the whole earth, and wherever men have surrendered to Him they have been made more useful, better, and happier. You need God; you cannot live well without Him.

Not only do you need God now, but you will need Him when you die and at the judgment. If you have not prayed yet, the day is coming when you will pray. God's Word says, "As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God," Romans 14:11,12. If men do not pray here while Christ waits for us to receive Him as Saviour and Lord, they will pray at the judgment when He will be their Judge. But to pray at the judgment will be too late. There is not forgiveness offered beyond this life. At the judgment you cannot make it alone.

Thank God, you need not go through life alone. Jesus promised His disciples, "I am with you always." And God has promised, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." Right now, if you have accepted Jesus Christ as Saviour, He is with you. If you have not yet received Him, He waits for you to open the door of your heart and let Him come in. Praise Him if He is with you now. If He still is without, seeking entrance, confess your sin to Him and invite Him as your Saviour and Lord. Jesus makes a wonderful difference.
