I am confused. Where is Jesus when I need Him?

Where Is Jesus?

For the confused one, the Lord is eager to clear all of your confusion. The Bible teaches that God loves you so much that He gave His only Son to save you. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). So, lay your problems at His feet because He promised, “Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).

Because of the complexities of life, the evil one often confuses God’s children, therefore, it is necessary to receive fresh instruction daily through the study of God’s Word and prayer. A Christian thus instructed, who purposes in his heart that he will do nothing in any line that will displease God, will know just what course to pursue in any matter. The Lord promised, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you shall go: I will guide you with my eye” (Psalm 32:8).

What Shall the Confused Do?

When you are confused, claim God’s promise for wisdom, “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him” (James 1:5). This truth should inspire you with boldness in making your requests known to the Lord. You are to approach Him as a child desiring the love and help of a caring Father (Hebrews 4:16; Matthew 7:11).

The Lord will shed His light on your path that you may know which way to choose “The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1). The Lord is our light illuminating the darkness around us, making clear our pathway.

The Lord will not let you stay in the valley of uncertainty, “No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it” (1 Corinthians 10:13). And He will guide you by His continual presence, “Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you.’ So, you can say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?’” (Hebrews 13:5-6).

As long as you submit to His will and walk in His path, you can claim His promises of help, wisdom and power. You should ask in Christ’s name (John 14:13; 16:23), agree with the brethren (Matthew 18:19), believe in His word (Mark 11:24), and observe His commandments (1 John 3:22). “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us” (1 John 5:14).
