"Behold, God is my helper and ally; the Lord is my upholder and is with them who uphold my life." (Psalm 54:4 AMPC)
Who we seek help from will determine our outcome. Going to the wrong person(s) can result in disaster! Always start with God!
Just after that, Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah and said, “Because you went for help to the king of Aram and didn’t ask God for help, you’ve lost a victory over the army of the king of Aram. Didn’t the Ethiopians and Libyans come against you with superior forces, completely outclassing you with their chariots and cavalry? But you asked God for help and he gave you the victory. God is always on the alert, constantly on the lookout for people who are totally committed to him. You were foolish to go for human help when you could have had God’s help. Now you’re in trouble—one round of war after another.” (2 Chronicles 16:7-9 MSG).
Once you've consulted God, ask Him if you should go to anyone else for help, then ask Him who you should go to for help, direction. He knows exactly who you should ask. Keep in mind it may not be who you think! Always start with Him and then allow Him to direct your steps.
Where God directs He provides:
"Go to the east and hide by Kerith Brook, near where it enters the Jordan River. Drink from the brook and eat what the ravens bring you, for I have commanded them to bring you food.” So Elijah did as the Lord told him and camped beside Kerith Brook, east of the Jordan. The ravens brought him bread and meat each morning and evening, and he drank from the brook." (1 Kings 17:3-6 NLT)
“Go and live in the village of Zarephath, near the city of Sidon. I have instructed a widow there to feed you.” (1 Kings 17:9 NLT)
The key is seeking God and then obeying His directions whether they make sense, or not, to you!
"Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths." (Proverbs 3:5-6 AMPC)
"Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make. Become intimate with him in whatever you do, and he will lead you wherever you go." (Proverbs 3:5-6 TPT)
