June 27, 2018 GOD WANTS TO HELP
We have all had troubles. Some of us are going through hard times right now. We are struggling and have perhaps thought about different ways to solve our problems. We may have tried a thing or two only to find out it was just a temporary fix. When we have hard times, we need to remember God wants to help. When we decide to go to God, He can help us. He wants to take our issues and problems and do what He does best. He wants us to be free from worry and discouragement. God wants to help.
Isaiah 41:10 “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” (NLT)
1. Write about some issues you have had.
2. List what you did to attempt to solve them.
3. Remember God wants to help you in hard times.
4. Put your faith and trust in Him and give Him all the glory.
Dear Lord, we are so tired of the problems in this world. We are so weary from trying to fight our battles alone. Help us to remember You want to help us. We know when we choose to depend on You, You will give us peace. You will handle things. And the outcome will be far greater than anything we can do. And the best part is we will grow in our faith in You and we can give You all the glory. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
God wants to help us in hard times but we have to choose to go to Him for that help.
Getting God’s help means we give up with our own way and choose to go His way.
Hard times come to us all. How we choose to deal with them will determine our outcome. Choosing God’s way will always produce a good outcome.
Knowing God wants to help us and His way is always the right way should be incentive to always go to Him for help.
When we turn away from God in hard times, we will suffer. When we go to God and listen to Him, we are promised peace and safety.
Proverbs 1:32-33 “For simpletons turn away from me—to death. Fools are destroyed by their own complacency. But all who listen to me will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm.” (NLT)
