God Help Me: 10 Verses That Prove God Has Your Back

Whenever you want to pray, “God help me please,” remember these 10 verses that prove He is on your side. God is your helper!

My daughter’s hair is almost to her waist. She’s never had it cut, except for when her brother cut a piece off the side a few months ago (I cried). We’ve all put off her hair being cut because she was born with baby curls, and we know once it’s cut, it will be straight. This is what happened with other babies in our family’s history on both sides. Little Miss wants to keep her curls too.

So she gets massive tangles sometimes. I try to be as gentle as possible and hold her locks so they won’t pull, but sometimes it’s painful. 

As much as my Little Miss has said repeatedly that she doesn’t want a haircut yet, there was one time that it was seriously matted. It was taking a long time. She said, “Mommy, I think I want my hairs cut short so I don’t have the tangles. They hurt!”

I started praying, “God, please help me through this!” And I knew He would. His peace immediately settled my heart. He gave me an idea to distract her which made the process go a lot smoother.

The Lord is Your Helper

That day I got to thinking about how when life deals us a tangled mess, we don’t want to deal with the pain or hassle of it. We just want a quick fix, like chopping my daughter’s hair short. 

But like I brushed out the tangles one piece at a time, we must deal with life’s entanglements one step at a time.

Let’s say God is working through those with you, and each sweep of the brush is an application of His Word. We need to apply His promises, commands, and truths to every situation. 

He will receive glory for that, just like long hair is called a glory to a woman (1 Corinthians 11:15). Don’t cut off the opportunity for God to help you with your life’s problems!

He might answer you with encouraging Bible verses like the ones above about help from God, give you specific wisdom, or bring a friend or book across your path to speak words of life.

Friend, God hears your prayers. He’s working to answer them. And He’s cheering you on, every step of the way.

When the sinner is in turmoil, you’ll have His peace. When the unbeliever is needy, you’ll be provided for. And then you can help someone else because God came to your aid.

Can you thank Him and praise Him right now for being so constantly good?!

  1. Hi Kelly, as I decided to delight;t myself in the Lord not only for the desires of my heart but to get to know Him more and more I happen upon your web page. Oh, how enlightened it was to read what you wrote. It mirrored what I had on my heart exactly (all due to the holy spirit of course) I’m from a family of Pastors and I find myself homeless as an educated woman, lost everything due to a car accident I’m now living out of my car. I say God how did that happen, I give, I sow into one organization for 12 years even if I am not working, why do I find myself in this predicament, God?
    Now all I’m interested in is not to allow my heart to be troubled, and delighting myself in Him and I have begun to see a massive change in my life. Still waiting for a home but I’m good in His timing. Thank you so much for your remarks and encouragement. God richly take care of you and yours!!
