Many people are hurting from the problems of life, and they are going in the wrong direction to solve them. God doesn’t protect man from all the struggles of life, but He is a great help with its burdens (Psalm 34:1-22). Now a person may say, “I tried God and it didn’t work.”
Sounds like you went about it wrong because it does work (Matthew 6:33). Perhaps you thought God was going to move on your time and do things your way. And when that didn’t happen, you threw up your hands and stomped away (2 Kings 5:10-12). God is able to help man. But man must be willing to help himself (Matt 7:7-8).
It all starts with coming to God with a sincere heart and being willing to accept His word (James 1:20-22). Too many people don’t do this! They go to church for a few Sundays. say a few prayers and set a time limit for God to work in their lives. Plus they never repent or conform their behavior to what God wants.
Well, God isn’t a slot machine, and He will never response to man on man’s terms. Man must drop his personal thoughts, open the Bible and do things God’s way. You ready to start?
