'Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.'
Though Jesus was on Earth around 2000 years ago, he remains the same today, and he won't change in the future. Through the Holy Spirit, we know Jesus personally like the first disciples did and he will continue to be the same for eternity, his love will never run out on us and he has new mercy for us every day, just as was read about him throughout the gospels! Not only this, but neither has the Holy Spirit changed, so the same things that the early church were doing (casting out demons, healing the sick etc.) should be the experience of all who are truly born again.
Sometimes it is hard to comprehend that our God never changes because we live in a world where everything around us is changing and we ourselves are changing constantly, therefore we think God has changed but this certainly is not the truth. He is the same God that Abraham knew and the same God we know today! Because of this the things he has done for us before won't come to an end, he will continue to rescue us out of our trials and forgive us when we stumble.
In Genesis 15 the LORD reminded that it was him who got Abraham out of his trials
'Then the LORD told him, "I am the LORD who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land as your possession."'
God reminded Abraham that it was him who brought him out of old land and into new land, just as God helped Abraham here, he will bring us out of our trials into freedom in him! He never changes.
Having this knowledge that God never changes will help you remember that whilst you are in the midst of trials God will provide and show you the way out as he has done before, and he will continue to do so because he is the same God!

It is true that Jesus is the same. It is also true that God has an unchanging nature. Volumes can easily be written about both and about how a fundamental understanding of both can make for a very sure foundation. It would be helpful to see more clarification on the point about "he will bring us out of our trials". Is He to be used as a get out of jail free card? Or is He the rock on which we build that gives our foundation the necessary strength during the storms? I'm sure a case could be made for either. I would encourage you to fill in the article with a little more substance before jumping from one potential correlation to another. There is plenty to be said and many examples to be given.
