Is there really a God? Will He help you?

Sometimes God will help you and fix the crisis you’re going through, but He doesn’t always do it. Even after you hand the problem over to Him and ask for His help, there’s no guarantee. You can see examples of this in the Bible.

The Apostle Paul was one of the greatest missionaries, establishing multiple churches across a large region, and God described him as “my chosen instrument to take my message to the Gentiles and to kings, as well as to the people of Israel” (Acts 9:15). During Paul’s ministry, he was imprisoned multiple times for his faith. He spent years under arrest and only once did God intercede and free him. Why? Did God help Paul in other ways or was there a larger plan?

Will God help you during difficult times? First, He reminds us we don’t have to go through struggles alone if we know Jesus. You are adopted into God’s family once you commit your life to Jesus. You become a child of God. On top of that, God comes to live within you through His Holy Spirit—providing assurances of His love and hope for your future.

Second, God desires to give us wisdom to help us through our problems. When we encounter trouble, many people begin trying to solve it on their own and they miss out on their best tools for solving problems.

  1. Talk to God first and ask Him for help.
  2. Seek out fellow believers and their godly advice.
  3. Open the Bible and gain wisdom from His Word.

God has made it clear He is ready and able to help you. The Bible says, “I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!” (Psalm 121:1-2).

But sometimes your troubles continue longer than you want. God offers you strength and patience to persevere through hard times. Everyone encounters problems and life is full of them. But it’s better to go through times of trouble with God than without Him—and His plan for you is certainly the best.

“God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble” (Psalm 46:1). By Billy Graham

Commit your life to Jesus and then strive to commit your problems to Him every day.
