Bible 911

Sometimes when we need help, God is the last place we turn. However, He should be the first! God is the answer to all of our questions and the healer of all of our wounds. It only makes sense that the first person we call for help is the Great Physician. I know that it may feel like God doesn’t hear our prayers or doesn’t care, but the reality is that no prayer goes unanswered. God’s answer may not be what we want to hear, but His timing and will are perfect. The answer may be “No” or “Not Now,” but there is always a perfect answer from God.
