Return here each week for a new thought provoking article.

         No problem, no catastrophe, no sorrow is larger than God’s desire and ability to help.  And God, who “cannot lie” (Titus 1:2), has indeed promised to help His own.
          The Psalmist declares, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”  (Psalms 46:1.)  The Hebrew writer reminds us, “He has said, ‘I will never leave you, nor forsake you.’  So that we may boldly say, ‘The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.’”  (Hebrews 13:5,6.)  And the best-known, most-loved passage in all of the Scripture still reads as it always has:  “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want . . .  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:  for thou are with me . . . Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:  and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”  (Psalms 23:1,4,6.)
          The question is not:  “Does God care?”  He does.
          The question is not:  “Will God help me through my troubles, my difficulties, and my sorrows?”  He will.
          No, the real question, the one each of us in Christ must answer, is this:  “Do I believe what God has promised?”
          In the words of one anxious father of long ago, “Lord I believe; help thou my unbelief.”  (Mark 9:24.)
