God Please Help Me Find A Way

Updated on December 5, 2012

God Please Help Me

God Please Help Me

Today more than ever, so many people are feeling the pain from a job loss, suffering from financial hardship, their marriage is bad or even pained by a loss of a loved one. With all the turmoil and uncertainty that exists in life today, many are in such dire need and are calling out "God please help me". Obviously they have tried solving these life-issues on their own, but to no avail. With nowhere else to turn, more often than not people are relying on their faith and beliefs to find solutions.Now I'm not saying that this is a bad thing. But when they turn to God and offer prayers to Him and their prayers go unanswered, they get discouraged and fall further into depression and unhappiness. It can be a vicious cycle and can ultimately draw people even further away from God. So “How come God hasn't helped me?” How do you explain this and what do you do?

If you are seeking God and asking Him to intervene in your life and makes things right, one thing you need to know for sure and that is when you ask God for anything according to His will, He definitely hears you.

“This is the con­fi­dence that we have in Him, that if we ask any­thing accord­ing to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, what­ever we ask, we know that we have the peti­tions that we have asked of Him.” (1 John 5:14 & 15 NKJV)

This scripture clearly says that God will definitely answer our prayers, if we pray “accord­ing to His will”. So when I pray and ask God to please help me according to His will, I still get the same results. What am I doing wrong? Good question!

3 Things God Expects From Us

1. When you pray if you doubt Him even in the least, then you are considered "double-minded" and God will not answer your prayers. In other words you are praying and hoping and instead you should be praying and believing. There's a huge difference between the two. See scripture below.

“When you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That per­son should not expect to receive any­thing from the Lord. Such a per­son is double-minded and unsta­ble in all they do.” (James 1: 5–7 NIV)

2. Forgive those that have wronged you. If you are unwilling to forgive those that have trespassed against you, God will not forgive you for your trespasses. Do not allow unforgiveness to hang over your head. God extends you the same mercy you extend to others.

3. Are you asking God for the wrong things or with the wrong motives. (James 4:3 NIV). In other words are you asking God for things pertaining to "mate­r­ial gain", instead of seeking God’s plan for you to be ful­filled?In the bible, Matthew chapter 6:31–33, Jesus talk about not to worry about what to eat an what to wear as His heavenly father knows what your needs are. But instead says to seek first His kingdom and all will be added to you.

The bottom line is that God wants you to make Him first priority in your life and He will make you first priority and your prayers will be answered. So draw near to God and He will draw near to you. (James 4:8NIV) The good news that if you are reading this article, your have already taken the first step toward drawing near to Him. Make God first place in your life today and you will never look back.

      Mark 10: 51 "Master, let me receive my sight."

      Old Barteme'us got his sight. Sometimes I just don't see the answers to my prayers, so I do like him. And almost always I am rewarded.

      Great Hub, voted way up and useful.

      I believe that we all have our valley experiences from time to time. There have been many times that I felt that my prayers fell on deaf ears. It is then that I stand still until God's will is clear to me. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and reminding us that only God has the last word if we allow him. Be well, keep sharing and keep hubbing.

      I just love this because it is so true. At Faith Bridge Fellowhship in Palmetto Bay, FL Pastor Nathaniel Sweeting, Sr and the rest of the ministry there teaches us the same doctrines. Thanks, 'prayerstogod', for sharing this gospel truth here in our HubPages community. May the LORD bless you abundantly.
