Bible verses about God’s help
Sometimes when we are in tough situations we wonder where is God? Why won’t He answer? Maybe the tough situation is God’s helping hand at work. Sometimes the things that we think are bad happen because God is protecting us from an even worse situation that we didn’t see coming. We must not be stubborn and choose our will over God’s will.
We must put our full trust in the Lord and not ourselves. In all situations cry out to the mighty Lord for help. We tend to forget that God will work in the lives of Christians and use trials for our good and His glory. God promises that He will never leave us. He tells us to keep on knocking on His door and be patient. I always recommend believers not only to pray, but to fast as well. Fully depend on Him and have faith in the Lord.
