Who do you run to? When you are in trouble, when you are down and depressed, when you do not see a way out of your current circumstances? Do you turn to your spouse? Best friend? Neighbor? Anyone who will listen? Or do you turn to God?
Do you think that He is going to scold you? That He is going look at His record of whether you have been good or bad and decide whether you deserve His help?
God is not Santa Claus. God does not keep records of your wrongdoing. That was settled once and for all at the Cross where Jesus took the wrath and punishment for all sin–past, present and future (Romans 6:10). All sin. Period.
But God doesn’t help us if we made the mess ourselves. Psalm 107:20 says God delivers us from our destructions. Our destructions. We created them, yes, but God will still help us if we ask.
But God helps those that help themselves. This isn’t in the Bible. It goes against what the Bible teaches. The Bible shows us that Jesus helped all that came to Him.
Yes, they had to make an effort to come to Him, to give Him what they had–their broken bodies, their fish and loaves, their boat–and He healed what was wrong in their lives.
We have to come to Him. We have to give Him what we have and believe Him to heal it. No matter if it is our health, our finances, our relationships. It doesn’t matter. When the lady with the issue of blood came to Him, she needed healing (Mark 5:25-34) . He gave her healing. When the disciples didn’t catch anything all night, they needed fish (Luke 5:5-6). He gave them fish. When the boy gave Him the loaves and fish, they needed more food. He multiplied it and fed everyone (Matthew 14:13-21).
When we come to Jesus, when we ask for His help, He will give us what we need (Philippians 4:19). We just have to believe that we He said, He will do. Period. End of story.
