No matter the situation or the circumstance you face, when you allow God to become your solution, you can add “But Jesus will…” to the end of your need knowing that He is taking care of it. Help is on the way. Even before you pray and ask God for help, He is already working on your behalf.
Isaiah 65:24 says, “I will answer them before they even call to Me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!”
This gives you hope when you experience troubling times, whether externally or internally. Knowing that God works tirelessly for you encourages your weary soul. It builds up your trust in Him, as well as filling your heart with peace. When God is given the opportunity to intervene whatever it is you face, victory can be claimed ahead of time. You will receive answers. It may not come in the way you expect but it will come. Sometimes God answers prayers clearly while other times His help can be seen in tiny ways.
Whichever way He answers, it is always on time and what you need.
A verse that God continually speaks to me on this very topic is Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, and I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Look at what John 14:14 says, “If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.” And Psalm 34:17, “When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of their troubles.”
How does a person receive such wonderful help? God has a few criteria that aids in Him responding to where He will receive the glory. Whatever it is that you are facing, God will use it in such a way that your flesh is quieted and your soul is awakened to the presence of the Lord. His presence changes your problems into praises. His presence lifts your soul to abide on the Rock of your salvation with Jesus. While you hang out with Jesus, God takes care of the uncertainties you face.
Criteria 1: Jesus must live within your heart. God moves mountains, boulders, anything that will hinder your faith walk with Him. He may rearrange your life and reprioritize what is important. Let Him have His way. When a believer surrenders himself to Jesus, God stops at nothing to help you become what He has intended you to be.
Criteria 2: You must trust God. Without trust, even when He does help you, you probably won’t notice it. You probably won’t be thankful for His help either. Believe that He is actively working in your life. You don’t have to see to believe.
Criteria 3: Look for the good. God is everywhere and ready to help you when you want it. Good can be found anywhere and everywhere. Even when evil seems to be gaining ground, God will never relinquish His control over to the evil one. Satan became a defeated foe when Jesus went to the cross. You can read how Jesus is victorious in the book of Revelations. It gives the events of the future that you can be sure will come to pass.
When you call on Jesus, you will be victorious.
Help is on the way today. God will meet your needs. Stand tall and proud that Jesus has your back and will take you from defeat to victory in every area of your life. Each morning ask of Him and see how He shows up as you fill up with His Word and live by them.
Have a great day for the Lord is with you.
