I will boast only in the LORD; let all who are helpless take heart.
Psalms 34:2 (NLT)
Learned helplessness. That depressive state of mind where we believe that there is nothing we can do to change our situation. We have come to the conclusion that we are both helpless and hopeless in our circumstance. David knew what that felt like. How many battles did he have to fight? How many people did he see die? How long did he have to run from the mad King Saul that wanted him dead for no apparent reason? Yet David sends a message to all who would feel helpless. He says, “Take heart!” He continues writing, “I prayed to the LORD, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. – In my desperation I prayed, and the LORD listened; he saved me from all my troubles.” Today know that you are not hopeless, you are not helpless. You can take heart, knowing that you can pray and the Lord will listen. He will free you.
Dear Father. Sometimes I feel so hopeless. Help me. Hear my prayer, answer me and free me from this helplessness. In Jesus’ name.
