God will deliver You

Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

One of God's amazing promises in His Word, is that He will deliver His children in time of trouble.  Psalms 91:14 states that just because you have set your love upon God, He promises to deliver you. However, many of us turn to God as a last resort.  We often turn to God when we have no other alternatives. We are taught self reliance in Western society.  

However, God wants us to be wholly reliant on Him.  The Lord's Prayer states "give us this day our daily bread".  He want us to come to Him everyday for our daily necessities.   God is not like a natural parent that expects you to fend for yourself when you reach a certain age.  "For In Him we live and move and have our being".  Acts 17:28.
