Worried? Experience God’s Help!

by Hazel Straub

Worry about your troubles, paralyzing you? God will never fail you. Pour out your troubles to him. Believe him and experience his help today!

Only God is my Savior, and he will not fail me.
For he alone is my safe place.
His wrap-around presence always protects me
as my champion defender.
There’s no risk of failure with God!
So why would I let worry paralyze me,
even when troubles multiply around me?
God’s glory is all around me!
His wrap-around presence is all I need,
for the Lord is my Savior, my hero, and my life-giving strength.
Join me, everyone! Trust only in God every moment!
Tell him all your troubles and pour out your heart-longings to him.
Believe me when I tell you—he will help you! (Psalm 62:5b-8 TPT)

  1. Worrying is not the will of God. It’s a SIN. Leave it, forsake it. It hurts God’s heart when his own children keep worrying 💔

    • True, worrying is not God’s will. He invites all to cast their cares on him because he loves us. When we trust, believe, and obey God, we will not worryQ

      • Amen. We are in desperate need to learn to undo the cultural habit of worrying. Worrying is universal phenomenon, but it doesn’t fit God’s plan for his children. Halleluyah pastor.

  4. God is an active listener to our prayers. He brings forth our petition or our thanksgiving (“O, Lord, open thou our lips, and our mouths shall show forth they praise”). He hears the deep desire that underlies our prayerful words, and with the Holy Spirit he transforms us in time and by the intercession of Christ Jesus, His only begotten Son, into His likeness. He is not only there for us when we need Him. He is bringing us into Himself and giving us the hearts to know him as “Our Father who art in Heaven.” We are children of heaven. That is our home not in our own virtue but because of His covenant unto each and every one of His appointed. When we really come to understand this, not just as an intellectual assertion, but a conviction in our hearts, then the trouble of the moment pales in comparison to the glory of His Son and of our lives reborn in Him.

    • Yes, Michael, our actions come from the heart not from knowledge. The glory of God and His Son makes such a difference. God wants us to seek Him and find everything we need in Him and his Son.

      • He wants us to come to Him, but He does not force us to do so. The reason is that He wants us to come to Him as an expression of our love for Him, and love necessitates free will. Love is critically important in this relationship because God wants us to be in his likeness, and since God is love that means that in order to be in His likeness we creatures must also be totally motivated by love. The fascinating mystery is that we are created beings, and yet we are being invited to love as God loves (“Be ye perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect”). This is an impossibly tall order, of course, except that Christ Jesus does that for us and allows us to live in and through Him. An interesting corollary question is whether the Incarnation had been inevitable from the very moment God created Adam and Eve. If God all along had wanted for man to be in His likeness (not just created in His image, but also in His likeness, meaning to love Him as He loves), then one may argue that the Incarnation had to have happened at some point as a way for us to be reborn through the Incarnate God into His likeness (thus being able to call the Father “Our Father”). Does that mean that Adam and Eve’s fall into sin had been inevitable, because without the fall there would have been no need for the Incarnate God to redeem us? If so, then what does that say about Adam and Eve’s free will? These are the types of questions that led to Calvinist theology. Anyway, however we may try to answer these queries, what matters is that we try to ponder them, for thinking about God, even His ultimately inscrutable mysteries, is one step towards knowing and loving him. The answers we devise (mind) are much less important than the love and dedication we give to the pursuit (heart).
