Help in Time of Need

Click here for the audio version

A man may find it difficult to make himself understood if he does not easily understand others. This is because of the fact that he may not understand what the other man understands if he does not understand the other man. The result is a failure to communicate or to discover anything in common. Fortunately, no one understands us better than the One Who created us in His Own Image. This, coupled with His omniscience, enables God to have perfect knowledge of everything that we need, even before we ask Him. His omnipotence enables Him to provide continuously every good and perfect gift, while His omnipresence ensures we are never out of His watchful sight. The Savior’s ability to understand us is further enhanced by the fact that He is not unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but was tempted in every manner as we are, though without sin. By Him we may approach the throne of grace with confidence, knowing that we may receive mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
