Life happens and not always in a pretty way! We have all tried to get through tough situations in our lives without God. He sits up in heaven with tears pouring down His cheeks watching us make one mistake after another, waiting for us to ask Him for help, but we don’t. We forget that he knows how to solve our problems with ease, and we accuse Him of abandoning us when it is we who have abandoned Him. God will not interfere in our lives unless we ask Him to. “Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete. (John 16:24) He promises that when we ask him to help us get through life’s difficulties, that he will not only help us, he will give us joy while we are going through our difficulties. I had one problem after another in my life when I suppressed God’s truth. I went through divorce, financial problems, horrible living situations, almost failed out of college, etc., etc., etc. I was under Gods wrath because I didn’t trust Him and ask Him for help. It usually isn’t until we reach our all-time lows that we ask God for help, so he lets us get to that point. I finally asked God for help and have kept asking Him. Since he now protects me because I ask, my life is relatively problem-free. I have small problems, but I no longer have major problems. I encourage you to ask God to help you solve your problems! He will! Please share with us how God has helped you solve or get through a problem or difficult situation.
