Have you or do you know someone who is helpless? Someone who is helpless can’t help themselves. They need help. They need someone to give them a hand.
Now someone may say, “There is no one that is helpless…if you have two hands, you should help yourself, don’t wait on someone else.”
And while there may be some truth to that, there are some people who are helpless. They need a hand.
Proverbs 10:17 says, “Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them.”
The Lord knows the hopes of the helpless. Think about that verse. The helpless hope someone will help them. They are hoping someone cares enough to show some compassion and help themselves. The scripture says the Lord knows the hopes of the helpless. And the Lord uses His people to help those who need help.
Maybe there is someone you know who needs help. Maybe the Lord wants to use you to help them.
The Lord knows our concerns our hopes and will help us.
