Here’s a simple question: When trouble comes your way, who is the first person you reach out to for help?

Many times we run to the people around us before we even pray or share our problem with almighty God. Now don’t go on and condemn yourself or start judging the people around you.

God surely uses the people around us to bless us and help us during our hard times, but this is just a reminder to all of us that even when the storm comes, we should put God first in our lives.

If you put your hope in the Lord, He will truly heal you, lead you into the right path and will renew your strength.

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles;

They will run and not grow weary,

They will walk and not be faint.

—Isaiah 40:31
