Help In Every Trial




But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!” And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him...
Matthew 14:30,31, NKJV 



It is for our present happiness and future good that God subjects us to trial... When called to pass through trials, we may know that thus God is striving to lead us to know Him and to place our trust in Him.

Your way may seem very dark...and you are ready to sink down in discouragement. But you are not forsaken... He sees the forces arrayed against you, and He sends you the message, “Let him take hold of My strength, that he may make peace with Me; and he shall make peace with Me.” 

Do not depend on human help. Why turn from the One who is all-powerful, to ask help of finite, human beings? Why not make God your counselor, saying, “Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life.” 

When you need help, go to Him to whom has been given “all power in heaven and in earth.” In your weakness and unworthiness come to Christ, saying, “Lord, save, or I perish.” 

In the darkest hour, let faith pierce the cloud surrounding you; for Christ is behind, and He does all things well. We have a covenant-keeping God, who knows all our necessities, a God who unites with His majesty the gentleness and tenderness of the shepherd. 

He has pledged Himself to supply all our need. Have faith in Him; for His honor is at stake. He will not alter the thing that has gone out of His mouth. He will fulfill His promise.

Bring rejoicing into your experience. When you are depressed, sing to the praise of God. Rejoice in the hope set before you,—the hope of eternal life. Talk faith, even tho you seem to be surrounded with darkness. 

Let us live lives of hope and trust. Christ has given us the key that unlocks heaven’s treasure-house of blessing. He declares, “Whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” 

Christ promises not only to present our petitions to the Father, and to intercede in our behalf, but to bestow the blessings sought.

Place your trust in God and take hold of His strength. 

Make God your counselor, saying, “Lord, whom shall I go to? You have the words of eternal life.” 

When you need help go to Christ who has “all power in heaven and in earth.” In your weakness come to Him saying, “Lord, save me or I perish.” 

When you are depressed sing to the praise of God. Rejoice in His hope and talk faith.
