God of the Needy

"For He will deliver the needy when he cries, The poor also, and him who has no helper. He will spare the poor and needy, And will save the souls of the needy. He will redeem their life from oppression and violence; And precious shall be their blood in His sight." (Psalm 72:12-14 NKJV) God is not a god of the rich and powerful, of those who already have their life in perfect order, and don't need anything. God is a god for the poor and needy, those needing help, comfort, and relief. And, Jesus especially understands those. He was born in the poorest of circumstances. Jesus was born in a stable (or some speculate a cave) where animals were kept. So, it was probably dark, dingy, a little smelly, and not real clean. It was the barest of places. Those who have everything emotionally, physically, and spiritually together have no need of help. God sent Jesus to help those of us who need help, and the more help we need the more He's there for us. This means He's there for ALL of us, because none of us actually have everything perfectly together. We all have a need for Jesus to come and help us. And, like I said, the more you need Him, the more He's there for you. Just let Him in! Love, Beau
