God is a very present help in trouble!
Romans 8:35 says:
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?”
I’m sure all of us can say that in each of our lives, we’ve felt some or all of these situations.
And no doubt, if we’ve remained true to the Lord, we have cried out to the Him and trusted in Him, to bring us through it every time. After all, who else can we truly trust in times where no one on earth can help us?
In Psalms 46:1 the Bible says this:
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
And like the Psalmist, the Apostle Paul knew this as well because he continues in Romans 8:
“37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39 KJV
In every situation, the Lord is with us. So no matter what we go through, we can always pray to Him, ask Him and believe Him.
He will never leave us or forsake us!
“5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” Hebrews 13:5 KJV

“O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.”
Psalms 105:1 KJV
I have heart disease, that I was quickly reminded of, when I tried to help bring a sofa up a flight of stairs. Chest pain and shortness of breath swiftly caused me to sit and rest. After a few minutes I was feeling better but still had a little chest tightness that eventually eased.
I’ve previously had a failed open heart surgery in which one artery was not bypassed. The good news is that a small heart attack may be beneficial, taking away the issue of stable angina. The bad news, is that would HURT lol. The sad news is that, I continue to have chest pain with exertion and another heart attack is going to happen at some point. That is, unless the Lord totally heals my heart.
Anyway, After four heart attacks and one on the way, I had to quit my job, sell the house and moved into the RV. I didn’t get disability until two years later. If it had not been for God working through his children in Florida, we would have been on the street! They are beautiful people who love the Lord and they were a huge blessing to my wife and I.
Since then, and after a lot of prayer and after God allowed the disability to come through, He miraculously, allowed us to buy a home, with NO DOWN PAYMENT and DECREASED INTEREST. And just like God, it’s much better than the one we had to give up. And!, ALL of the expenses are much less than before!
The wife now has a newer vehicle!! Plus, I was able to keep my truck through all of this!
The best news is, I’m still able to minister with my music. God’s people are always willing to carry in equipment when I’m alone. Other times my wife, Ruby, does most of the work. In most cases, Ruby will have all the equipment torn down AND loaded! All while I’m still shaking hands and saying goodbye to folks at the product table! She’s such a hard worker and I’m blessed with a wonderful wife! I love you baby!
So yes! Indeed: “O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.”
Psalms 105:1 KJV

We are freely justified by his grace!!
Romans 3:23-24 King James Version (KJV)
“23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:”
Sin came by one man, Adam and Grace came by one man, Jesus Christ! We can’t undo the curse of sin, only Jesus can do that! And He did! On the Cross of Calvary!! The Lord willingly shed His Blood on the Cross and therefore taking the punishment that we so definitely deserved!! And now, His Grace abounds!! All that is needed is for us to believe!!!
Romans 10:9-10 King James Version (KJV)
“9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
So then, who can be saved? ALL who call upon the name of our Lord!
Romans 10:13 King James Version (KJV)
“13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
All who believe that Jesus is Lord and repent of their sin shall be saved!! Jesus is the only way to escape the horrible guilt of sin!! No matter how well you live, your sin debt is still alive and well unless you accept Jesus Christ as Savior! He and only Him can free you and justify you!! Jesus died on the Cross of Calvary for YOU!!! The debt has already been paid for you and all you need to do is be sorry for your sins and believe that He is the Son of God! Believe that He died for your sins on the Cross and that He arose from the dead just three days later. Pray now and invite Him into your heart! Tell Him you believe and ask Him to forgive you and be YOUR Savior. Please, don’t wait, do it now while you still can. As long as there is breath in your body, you can call on Jesus and He WILL forgive you. Amen and Amen!!!
