An Ever Present Help

I can bet that we all get into trouble or have some tribulations many times, or rather calamity strikes unexpectedly. Immediately we are in trouble; we shift into panic mode trying to get solutions from left, right and center. One thing we forget is that we have an ever-present help in God himself. We bypass God and ignore him because of our unbelief and fears, yet he is the God of all humankind who can handle any situation that is presented to him. If you take refuge in God, he will deliver you and not let you be put to shame. God gives you the strength you need to push on while in trouble; he is the calm in your storm. In Isaiah 43:2, the LORD promises that through the waters he will be with you when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you, and when you walk through the fire, you will not be burned.
