Our #1 Support Network: God

When we think of support networks, we often forget our primary support – God.

God is our creator, our redeemer, our sustainer, our comforter, our Father and our Lord. He should always be our primary support. The one whose word we turn to as our model for living, the one from whom we are encouraged and the one to whom we are ultimately accountable.

It is from our relationship with God that we receive support and from which we are able to support others.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. (2 Cor 1:3-4)
When you need support, do you turn to God in prayer and to his word first? If not, why not?
What things or people in this world are you tempted to turn to first? Why?

Thanks Wendy, a great reminder! I must admit that I don't turn to God first nearly enough. Perhaps when all else has failed...
