Topic: Why did Jesus say that he'd always be there for us?
June 16, 2019 / By Augusta Question:
Right now I'm offended deeply, I am tired of being scared and run over by everyone and the world. He is our Lord, so why am I so afraid he is failing me? My BF just is cheating, my money is low, and I'm so unhappy. Guess he gave us the word, but finding comfort in the scriptures seems so unbelievable when others laugh and go there merry way thinking I'm the one left with nothing.

No offense, but you seem to be one of those people who thinks that Jesus/God will magically solve all your problems for you if you "just believe in him". That's not how life works, I'm afraid. You can ask God for support, strength or guidance, but it's up to YOU to take control of your life and make things better.

If you are referring to the verse: "And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age" (Matthew 28:20), this is what Jesus told His disciples during the Great Commission, when He gave the disciples His instructions and commands to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you" (Matthew 19-20). Jesus told His disciples that He would "be with them always", because of the promise of the Holy Spirit that they would later receive, in order to help them bring others to Him.
If you have been baptized with the Holy Spirit, and if you carefully follow all of Jesus' teachings and commands, then you likely would not be "offended" by what is going on in your personal life. You need to remember that God must ALWAYS be first in your life, even when things are not going well for you, or if it seems that others are going "their merry way". God does not remove our troubles, but helps us through them.
"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well" (Matthew 6:33).

first have you aske for help?
If yes you may be being tested to see if you have enough faith to believe he is there.
Jesus was mocked and derided and crucified even stripped of he clothes.
As followers of Jesus are we any better than he? He was perfect and without fault spotless and pure.
we humans do not fit any of that. no not even me.
we have faith if we believe but he may test us to see if we will trust him even if we have nothing. Read the book of Job.
In the end his wife and friend told him to curse god and die because he was a sinner.
but when the story ends Job was justified and was given 2 times what he had to start with
children and animals and servants.

You seem to be stuck in a slave mentality. You let other people control your life - Jesus, your boyfriend, total strangers on R&S.
Take up the responsibility and the reins, and change your own life! Start with dumping your cheating boyfriend. Find a job, find a hobby, stop caring what other people think, and change your life until you're happy with it.

Where did he say that?
I think I know which scripture you are talking about but it has a slightly different meaning.
Jesus spent his time on earth and disciples teaching them about the work that needed to be done for God's Kingdom.
Learning what exactly that is how you fit into it is what will help you answer that question.
Here are some starting points.

Set your hopes on Heaven and cheer-up. If your boyfriend is cheating, dump him and wait for marriage to someone Christian.
