Asking God For Help

diana-simumpande-197805

It is great to know that we can bring our requests to God. It is a wonderful thought that we can approach God. That’s what we want to do today. To trust together with you, for that which you are trusting God for. I believe God listens and hears our prayers. He wants to be a Father to us and help us. We can ask God for help, in any area. Let’s trust God today.

GOD KNOWS WHAT YOU NEED

This is a reassuring fact. God is in the know. He is NOT ignorant of our needs and situations. Jesus went through hard times and He understands what you may be going through.

Matthew 6:8 Your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!
Before we ask God for something, He already knows we have need of it. That’s just like a father!

Answered Prayer

ANSWERED PRAYER

This is one of God’s plans for us. That we would experience the reality of answers to our prayers.

Jeremiah 29:12 In those days when you pray, I will listen.

Part of God’s plan is that we would have a knowledge that He listens to us when we pray. This is a great thought! Part of God’s plan for us is answered prayer.

FINDING GOD

This is another plan that God has for us. That we would ‘FIND’ Him and know Him!

Jeremiah 29:13 You will find Me when you seek Me, if you look for Me in earnest.

I love the phrase – ‘You WILL find Me’. We need to SEEK Him and LOOK for Him in earnest. And the promise is that if we do this we WILL find Him! God wants to be a reality in our lives.

YOU ARE GOING TO BE ALRIGHT

If you have entrusted your life to God, then you can have confidence. If you are endeavoring to seek Him and look for Him you can feel secure! God has plans for your life that only He knows. God is still in control regardless of how the situation may appear. He loves each one of us! And has good plans for us! Start praising the Lord for what He has in store and allow expectation to rise within you knowing that God has got a plan and you are going to be alright

A Light At The End Of The Tunnel

brooke-cagle-52215-unsplash.jpg

GOD DOES NOT HAVE PLANS FOR EVIL!

God’s plans for us are for our good! Not for our evil! They are blessings to us, the things He has in store for us.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil …

But despite this, sometimes, bad things happen. That’s just how life is. God is so gracious that He even turns those things into good for us.

Romans 8:28 We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.

God has NO plans of evil towards us. And He can turn anything around!

A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL

God wants to be a constant source of hope in our lives.
His plans for our lives include giving us HOPE! HOPE is an essential aspect in our lives.

Jeremiah 29:11 – 13 For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Without hope we do not have the strength for tomorrow. God has a future and a hope for each of us. We can have confidence in this.

God Has Not Forgotten You

GOD HAS NOT FORGOTTEN YOU

Can a mother forget her newborn child?

Isaiah 49:15 – 16 Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! 16 See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands; your walls are ever before Me.

‘I will not forget you!’ – You may feel like God has forgotten you, but He has not! Where man may forget in vital areas, God never forgets even the smallest detail of your life. We are engraved on the palm of His hands. He is aware of our issues and challenges.

WHAT ARE THESE PLANS THAT GOD HAS FOR US?

Great plans! Not plans we have for ourselves, which He approves of, but plans that He has for us. Plans that God has specifically designed and created especially for you. This is a great and special thought! The plans that God has for you are for your good.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good …

Plans for our good – What a thought!
‘Plans to prosper you’ – That’s what the NIV translation says. ‘Thoughts of peace’ – That’s what the KJV says. God has plans for each of us, plans for our good, plans to prosper and thoughts of peace towards us. What a great God!

You Are Going To Be Alright!

It is great to know that we can have confidence in God.
To know that we can trust Him. To know that He is working in our lives. Things are not out of control, God has everything in hand. There is an old song: ‘He’s got the whole world in His hand’. It goes on: ‘He’s got you and me brother/sister in His hand’. Because of this we can know that we are going to be alright.

GOD HAS A PLAN

For each of us God has a plan. You are not exempted or excluded.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord.

Just look at the following:
There is a plan and God has a plan for you. God knows the plan that He has for you. It is good to know that God knows the blueprint for our lives. Sometimes it feels like we are just tossed around by circumstances. In the middle of all this it is great to know that we can have the knowledge that God knows what is going on for each of us! I love the phrase: ‘Declares (says) the LORD’ (Jeremiah 29:11 – NIV) This is confidence, knowing that God has the master plan.

God Is Interested In Each One Of Us

GOD IS INTERESTED IN EACH OF US

We don’t approach God to make Him aware of our situation. We don’t go to God so that He can see our need. He already knows. We go to God because we love and we need Him. God knows that we need Him. But sometimes we don’t realize how much we need Him When we realize this we can run to Him.

Psalm 139:17-18 How precious it is, Lord, to realize that you are thinking about me constantly! I can’t even count how many times a day your thoughts turn toward me. And when I waken in the morning, you are still thinking of me!

AGAIN AND AGAIN

2 Corinthians 1:9-10 We felt we were doomed to die and saw how powerless we were to help ourselves; but that was good, for then we put everything into the hands of God, who alone could save us, for he can even raise the dead. And he did help us and saved us from a terrible death; yes, and we expect him to do it again and again.

You may feel that things are beyond your control. It may even feel like you are dying. You may feel powerless and helpless. These are not bad emotions. They are good in that they make us realize just how much we need God. The joy of this scripture is that ‘He did help us and saved us.’ That is what God wants to do. And we can expect Him to do just that again and again. This can happen as we come to Him again and again.

He Is Waiting

julian-schropel-1148238-unsplash.jpg

DON’T STOP GOING TO GOD

Don’t turn to other things. Perhaps God has not come through for you, as you would have expected. But that does not mean we stop going to Him. We must keep on going back again and again.

Psalm 139:16 You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe. Every day was recorded in your book!

On the basis of this great fact, we can go to God without hesitation. It is for this same reason that we should not turn to other things. No matter what, don’t stop going to God.

APPROACHING GOD EVERY DAY

This is the type of lifestyle that we need to develop. A lifestyle of daily going back to God should be our goal. Running on our own strength was not what God intended for us. Running on His strength was what He had planned for us.

Psalm 5:3 Each morning I will look to you in heaven and lay my requests before you, praying earnestly.

Have you approached God today for anything? Call on Him. Develop a lifestyle of going to God over and over again. He will never stop loving you.

He Is Waiting

julian-schropel-1148238-unsplash.jpg

WE CAN APPROACH GOD

We can approach God again and again. God is open and receptive to our approaches. We do not need to fear. We can approach God with anything that is on our hearts and He is always ready and willing to listen and hear. Hebrews 4:16 So let us come boldly to the very throne of God and stay there to receive his mercy and to find grace to help us in our times of need. The key here is to go to the Lord and to stay there. Then we can receive His mercy and His grace.

HE IS WAITING

Yet the Lord still waits for you to come to him so he can show you his love; he will conquer you to bless you, just as he said. For the Lord is

faithful to his promises. Blessed are all those who wait for him to help them.
(Isaiah 30:18)

The thought that God is waiting for me to come to Him is a source of great joy and great delight.
Look at God’s motivation for waiting for us, so that He can show us His love. I want to experience more of His love. How about you? Keep on going to God; take all your issues and concerns to Him because He is waiting. Waiting to be good to each one of us. Yes, He wants to be good to you.
