Psalm 145:18-19 Mkjv The LORD is near all those who call on Him, all those who call on Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry, and will save them.
God is not some nebulous energy or mass. He is a being who seeks a relationship with those He created for that purpose--you and me.
He asks first and foremost that we come to Him with our need, even our doubts, fears, anger and frustration and ask for His help. He responds when we ask, fully expecting Jesus to intervene.
When life is a mess, do I go to Jesus for help, or try to "fix" things myself?
