The Bible says, "God is...a very present help in trouble." But first you must believe that "God is," otherwise the best you can hope for is good luck or human help and how far do you think that'll get you? When the doctor says he can't do any more to save you or a loved one, who will you turn to? When you've run out of answers and need guidance, where will you go to find them? When you're guilt-ridden and long for peace and forgiveness, who'll provide them for you? When you do away with God you become your own god, because you recognize no greater power in the universe than yourself. You can see why the Bible says, "The fool has said in his heart, There is no God"- (Psalm 14:1). How foolish to cut yourself off from the greatest source of help in all the universe! For the next few days let's talk about why "God is," and why you should put your trust in Him. • First, let's look at astronomy. The Bible says: "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun." (Psalm 19:1-4). Did you know that some estimate that 90 percent of the world's astronomers believe in God? That's a higher percentage than can be found among butchers, bakers, and candlestick makers! The great minds who have thoroughly examined His handiwork, believe that "God is." How about you?
"But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine." (Isaiah 43:1)
We are so precious to the Lord that He calls us His children. It is amazing to know that the Lord calls each one of us by name!
