“For the Lord saw that the affliction of Israel was very bitter; and whether bond or free, there was no helper for Israel.” II Kings 14:26
If you are going through tough times, I want you to know that God knows about it, and that He will surely help you. Even when you have no one to help you, God Himself will be your helper.
But you must learn to seek His help. James 5:13 says that if anyone is suffering, or afflicted, he should pray. That’s what Jehoshaphat did when he was attacked by a great army: the Bible says that he set himself to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. He prayed, “O our God, we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.” II Chronicles 20:12
You must learn to pray as if God is your only hope; that without Him there is no other way out. It’s called complete dependence on Him. I see God helping you. Go to church today and talk to Him about the things that are bothering you, He will surely do something about them. Amen.
