ARE YOU IN TROUBLE? - SEEK GOD FIRST!

If you are one of many people who tell the whole world about their problems everyday and need a change desperately, you have come to the right place.
You surely need help and a shoulder to cry on, but you yourself, your friends, your family, your love, your doctor, your psychologist or whomever you cry out to can not help you the way you need it.
They may help you to feel a bit better but deep inside you know that the wounds are still there, and so are your problems.



You need a divine, holy power that only God can give you to be fully healed and for your troubles to be blown away.
You need to realize instead of letting the whole world know about your troubles and worries you need to let God know first above all.
Don´t tell the world you have a big problem, tell your problems you have a big God.




The bible makes it very clear that we should come to God when we are in trouble:

Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

1 Peter 5:7
Casting all your anxiety upon him; for he careth for you.

Psalm 91:1-10
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say[a] to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,my God, in whom I trust.” 3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. 
4 He will cover you with his pinions,and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. 5 You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. 8 You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked. 9 Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place the Most High, who is my refuge 10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you,no plague come near your tent.

Psalm 34:6
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him and saved him out of all his troubles.

Nahum 1:7
The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him.


No matter how big your problem is God is always in control and he can do everything as long as you have faith in him.

Instead of letting everything get to us we need to learn, that as soon as something makes us anxious or worried we need to come to God and pray about it.
Only then when we cry out to God, not to people, and dwell in his safe presence will we be set free and see a change.

Jeremiah 17:5,7
Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.





DON´T PUT YOUR TRUST IN CORRUPTIBLE THINGS LIKE MONEY, FAME, PEOPLE OR OBJECTS; YOU WILL FALL.
BUT ONLY WHEN YOU PUT YOUR TRUST IN JESUS WILL YOU HAVE NEW STRENGTH AND FIND PEACE.
THIS WORLD CHANGES CONSTANTLY BUT GOD IS ALWAYS THE SAME AND HIS LOVE NEVER FAILS.
SO IN TROUBLE ALWAYS RUN TO JESUS FIRST.
HE WAITS TO HELP YOU AND CARES FOR YOU.

Isaiah 40:31
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
