Okay, so I’m constantly telling folks the answer is in the Word. Many read a little then don’t feel anything so they stop reading and go back to worrying. Let me help you further. Let’s just start in Psalms. Now you’ll notice a few things constantly repeated in the beginning of Psalms. God is our refuge. Let us work with this truth. We are told again and again basically that when we are in trouble we are to take refuge in the Lord. Now you say, ‘Well that’s great Ce but how does this actually help me’. I’ll show you in the Word. So now turn over to Psalm 91 My Refuge and My Fortress. Here’s your answer. He who dwells in the shelter of the Most high will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.’ ***Now here it comes get ready*** For He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler. ***BOOM there’s your answer*** How is God going to help you? He is going to deliver you. Now, much of the first part of Psalms is driving us to take refuge in God in times of trouble. And here we have the answer as to why we should take refuge in Him and what God does when people do. He delivers them. But that’s not all. Read on down to verse 9 Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place the Most High, who is my refuge no evil will befall you. ***Now keep going down to verse 11*** He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. ***Now go on down to verse 14*** Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. When he calls to me I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. ***BOOM BOOM BOOM*** Right there is the answers you’ve been seeking. So what are you to do when you have a problem and you cannot see your way clear. Take refuge in the Lord. How? Study His Word. Remember you can’t see Jesus when all you see is the pain. So get your eyes off the pain and focus only on Him. Then, what’s going to happen? Nope! Not all those lies worry and fear have been spinning. Focus on the truth not the thoughts running around in your head. What’s going to happen??? Exactly what the Word tells you. God is going to deliver you, command His angels concerning you, protect you, be with you, rescue you and honor you. So in short when we trust God i.e. take refuge in Him — He helps us. Actual help. He leads, guides and provides. Thus the answer to all your problems is TRUST GOD. And what are we to do when we can’t see our way clear STUDY HIS WORD AND FOCUS ON JESUS NOT THE PAIN. I hope this is a bit more helpful.
