God has always been God. There was never a time in which God was not present. He was able to save people in the past, just as He can today. He is the unchangeable, eternal, living God. The people who called upon God, did so as according to their faith. They believed in HIM. Disbelief will hinder your walk with God; and not only that, it is disbelief which prevents the blessings of God being poured out in your life! Faith and disbelief are two powerful forces, but belief is the strongest of the two.
is not that God is unable to help or save. Nor is it the case that He
is not willing to help. No, by all means, He is able to save at any
time, whatever the problem is; otherwise, He would not be almighty.
No, that is not the reason; but rather there is something which separates
you from the living God, and this is stopping you from receiving salvation
and help from above. God gives the answer through the prophet Isaiah
in 59:1-3: Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot
save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: (The power of God
is available, but...) your iniquities have separated between you and
your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not
hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity;
your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.
