God helps those who help themselves. NOT!

Jesus knockingFor years I’ve heard some folks now and again say “God helps those who help themselves”.  It is not only is not Scriptural, it is patently FALSE!

God helps those who . . .

  • Deny themselves, take up their cross daily and follow Him
  • Surrender to His lordship in our lives
  • Love one another
  • Seek His kingdom and His righteousness
  • Regard others as more important than themselves
  • Store up for themselves treasures in heaven
  • Share their love for Jesus with others
  • Hide His word in their hearts
  • Ask, seek and knock
  • Serve others
  • Call on Him
  • Obey His commands
  • Trust in the Lord with all their heart and lean not on their own understanding
  • Acknowledge Him in all their ways
  • Worship Him and Him alone
  • Praise His holy name
