Most people want to live for a long time. I hope that I have many more years to live. Why? Because I want to see my children and grandchildren grow up and have families of their own. God has blessed me with a wonderful family. They make me very happy.
But I do face problems in my life. All people have problems. Some people think that when they become Christians, they won’t have any more problems. But that’s not true. Sometimes Christians have even more problems because they follow and obey God.
When I have problems, I know that God will be with me and help me. In Psalm 91:15 God says that He is my source of help. “When my followers call to me, I will answer them. I will be with them when they are in trouble. I will rescue them and honor them.”
No matter what troubles I have today — financial problems, stress at work, family problems — I know that God will be with me. Whether I live a long time or just live for a few more years, I can be happy knowing God will help me.
Ask God to help you as you face problems today. You can depend on His love and grace!
