Heaven’s 24-hour Emergency Hot Line

Trust me in your times of trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory. Psalm 50:15 (NLT)

"If you love me and truly know who I am, I will RESCUE you and keep you safe." Psalm 91:14 (CEV)

God wants you to ask him for help when you are in trouble. He says, “Call on me in times of trouble. I will rescue you, and you will honor me.” (Psalm 50:15 GW)

I call this a “microwave” prayer because it is quick and to the point: Help! SOS! Mayday! For instance, when temptation strikes and you don’t have time for a long conversation with God -- simply cry out! David, Daniel, Peter, Paul, and millions of others have prayed this kind of instant prayer for help in trouble.

The Bible guarantees that our cry for help will be heard because Jesus is sympathetic to our struggle. He faced the same kind of problems we do. He “understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same temptations we do, yet he did not sin.” (Hebrews 4:15 NLT)

If God is waiting to help us, why don’t we turn to him more often? Honestly, sometimes we don’t want to be helped! At that moment we think we know what’s best for us more than God does. At other times we’re embarrassed to ask God for help. But the Bible says, “Let us have confidence, then, and approach God’s throne, where there is grace. There we will receive mercy and find grace to help us just when we need it.” (Hebrews 4:16 TEV)

God’s love is everlasting, and his patience endures forever. Ask him for help and then watch how he provides.
