“From where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.” Psalms 121:1-2 ESV.
The last time you found yourself in trouble, who did you first turn to? Was it your parents? your spouse? the police? Whatever the reply, you have found your answer.
I always shake my head whenever people in a movie find themselves in a crisis mode and the reply is “all we can do now is pray.” The vast majority of the time it comes after all the actors have done what they can to solve a problem without a solution. It portrays hoping in God as there last feeble attempt instead of their first viable option.
When we become aware of God moving in our life is a good time to seize the moment. He wants to have a relationship with us. He is closer to us than we even realize. There is nothing that can separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:39). Not our sins, nor our ignorance, nor our unbelief. He loves us unconditionally.
In a time of trouble, call out to Him. Let Him prove to you that He cares. He may not answer your prayer the way you want or expect, but He will answer it in a way that will glorify Him and be best in the long run for everyone involved(John 14:13).
What we eventually find over a lifetime of walking with our Maker is that He Cares more than we realize. In a time of trouble, He wants us to come to him. He wants to take the moment to develop a more intimate relationship with us. Yes, He works through various means. In most cases, these means are the people who will best help you in your current situation.
You may have contacted these people yourself without His assistance. However, when you allow God to lead in the situation, you can be assured that the best people for your circumstance will be there to walk with you through the trouble. God knows their heart and skills. We are His creation and He always does Good Work. And He gives people the opportunity to partner with Him in His plans.
Through these types of emergency situations, the opportunity to build a relationship of trust with our heavenly Father is being presented to you. The short term impact may not be what we like or want or prefer. However, the end result of walking in-hand with Him via the crisis is a mutual trustful marriage between the Creator of the universe and you. What help can be greater than that?
