God is our refuge and strength, always
ready to help in times of trouble.
-Psalm 46:1 (NLT)

When you face trouble, where do you
turn? Do you run to your phone and Google solutions to the problem? Do you ask your friends?

If we’re honest, we often choose the advice of others and the internet and forget about seeking God. We forget that we know the one who made everything. Often we forget He has all the wisdom and all the help we could ever need.

In times of trouble, God wants to be your strength and refuge. He wants to shelter you from the storm when things get tough. So if you’re going through a storm, know God cares. He loves you and wants to walk with you through your trouble.

Today, don’t forget to go to God. Seek His help, His strength in everything you do. He is the one who will help you out during the difficult times in your life.
