How to Find God’s Help When You’re Overwhelmed with Doubts

Do you ever feel like maybe God isn’t really there?  Does a twinge of doubt occasionally pinch you?

Particularly when facing a crisis and you’re up to your eyeballs in challenges?

And you’ve done all you can, you’ve done the right things, you’ve lived like you’re supposed to.

Yet, the problems persist and then you wonder, “Where is God in all this?  Why doesn’t he answer my prayers?  Does he care?  Is he even there?”

A lot of people have been there.  I certainly have.

But I’ve also seen the truth of what the Psalmist writes and God promises.

“He will call to me and I will answer him; I will be with him in times of trouble. I will deliver and honor him.”

He doesn’t say, “When you’ve done everything perfectly.”

He says, “When you call, I will answer.”

And he promises to deliver you out of every one of your troubles and bring you honor.

What an amazing promise.

Yes, sometimes the answer may be delayed.  And it may be different than you expected.  And it may come in ways you didn’t anticipate.

But God says he will answer and bless you.

And all you need to do is ask and expect.

After all, you are his child.

 

*Psalm 91:15
