Go To God

13 Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises. ~ James 5:13

When we’re in pain and going through hard times, who is the first one that we go to? Often times, God is the last person we go to. A lot of times, we go to others before we go to God. Sometimes we don’t even go to God. Why?

My whole life, I was taught that no matter how small or how the problem, I can always take it to God. My parents made sure that I understood that God wasn’t just this impersonal God in Heaven who didn’t care about us. They made sure that I knew that God is more than just an all-powerful God to be feared but a friend, a comforter, a helper, and a father.

The LORD is an awesome God that should be feared, but He is also our Heavenly Father that loves us more than silver or gold. Just like no problem is too small or too insignificant to bring to your earthly father or your best friend, nothing is too small or insignificant for your Heavenly Father. He wants to help you. He wants to be there for you, to be the shoulder that you lean on.

So, when hardships and trials come your way, go to God first. You aren’t bothering Him. You aren’t annoying Him. God wants you to come to Him with your problems. He wants to take the load off of your back.

28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30

Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.

1 Peter 5:7

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Go To God.
