Desperate Times Demand Real Help

Many people are facing desperate times right now.  Many have lost their jobs, their homes, their security and their hope.  The pressures are escalating in their lives exponentially. They wake up every morning with the tentacles of fears wrapped around them like a logging chain.   Day after day passes and they find themselves falling deeper into the black hole of despair.

Once outgoing, vibrant, free, now they feel like a prisoner with a life sentence. There seems to be no way out, no real escape, what are they to do? Who do you turn to when everyone has said no?  Where do you go when all hope is gone?  Do you just give up and die, or is there a real answer?

Paul said if in this life only he had hope he would be the most miserable man around.  He realized that this life alone could not truly satisfy or complete his life.  He understood that his answer would come from higher up, from the Lord. Only then would lasting hope and real peace be found and enjoyed.

Our God specializes in despair. He knows exactly what to do with desperation.  Our God understand how to lead you out of trouble.  Our God not only see where you are right now but really cares about your circumstance.

Many times when your life is full of trouble, and you have exercised all of your options you feel bad if you then turn to the Lord.  Don’t!

In His word He challenged us to call on him in the day of trouble.  He exhorted us to cast our cares on him.  He said come unto me all ye that labor and I will give you rest.

In your darkest night you can turn to him and he will hear you.  He came to seek and save those who were lost.  He came to heal, to deliver, to make whole those who were sick.  He came to rescue the hurting, restore the years that sin has stolen, and to give you a brand new day.

When you can’t pay your bills, when your utilities are cut off, when your faced with repossession and bankruptcy there is still hope.  When you’ve spent your last dollar, when you have expended all of your resources, Jesus can still help you.

What you can’t do he can do.  When you can’t find help He can send help your way.  When you don’t know where to turn He can give you direction.

Nothing is impossible with our God.  Impossible is a word that causes him no trouble.  Turn to Jesus.  Quit delaying and just call out to Him today.  Forget about diction, about proper speech, about sentence structure and simply call on His name.

Just say, Jesus I need you.  Jesus I don’t know what to do.  Jesus please help me.  Your cry will not fall on deaf ears.

I know it seems incredulous that Jesus Christ can help you when you’ve lost your job, your house, your hope, but He can and will if you give Him a chance.  Not only can He supply your physical needs but He can also supply your spiritual needs.

He can give you His own Spirit and life.  You can be Born from Above and become a partaker of His divine nature.  The possibilities are unlimited.  Give Jesus a chance today.
