When Trouble Comes

Trouble comes to everyone sooner or later, and that includes you. So it's not a question of whether trouble will one day come your way. It's a question of how you will handle trouble.

You need certain dependable resources in the day of trouble. You need good advice through wise counsel. You need patience in the midst of trouble. You also need friends who will be true. Most importantly, you need God's help.

God's help is available for you. It's only a prayer away. Call upon God in your trouble. He is a faithful friend. He has all wisdom. He can give you patience. Most importantly, he wants to help you.

Don't be reluctant to ask God for help. He is the believer's helper. Receive the Lord as your helper. Have confidence in him through your trouble.

"LORD, you are my strength and fortress, 
my refuge in the day of trouble." 
Jeremiah 16:19 NLT 

"That is why we can say with confidence, 
the Lord is my helper, so I will not be afraid" 
Hebrews 13:6 NLT
