Where do we go for help? Do we plan our rescue by our own strength and cunning? Are we looking to prove how smart and resourceful we are? God is the one who is truly able to save us. Even the psalmist understands that deliverance through man is in vain. See Psalm 60.
O give us help against the adversary, For deliverance by man is in vain. Through God we shall do valiantly, And it is He who will tread down our adversaries.
Psalms 60:11-12 NASB
God is the one who will win our victories for us. He is the one that delivers us. When we come to him, we can trust that he knows exactly the best way to solve the problems and that he will do that when the time is right. Any other solution is in vain.
