Since There Is A Creation, There Is A Creator
In Romans chapter 1 God says everyone knows He exists because they can see the creation, but some people suppress that knowledge.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools. - Romans 1:18-22
God Makes It Very Simple
God says that we all know He exists because: it is evident to us, because for God has made evident. How does He do that? We can clearly see, and understand there is a God, through seeing what God has created.
The principle is... if we see a painting, we know there is a painter. If we see a building, we know there is a builder. It's called the law of causality. If something has a beginning, it has a cause. We see the creation, we know there is a creator... God is real. And we have no excuse for denying Him.
So, if the law of causality says that everything that exists has a cause, who created God? Aha... be careful. That's not what the Law of Causality says. The Law of Causality says that everything that has a beginning has a cause. Everything in the universe has a beginning. That means it all has a cause. God does not have a beginning. As the cause that created time, God exists outside of time and is thus without a beginning. He is the uncaused cause.

THE ANSWER IS...
Jesus does not promise to take away all your troubles. He promises those will get worse. But, Jesus does promise to free you from worry and anxiety.
How does that work?
The Bible says, Be anxious for nothing... (Philippians 4:6) Why? When you trust Jesus, no matter what happens in this life, you will spend eternity with God... and that is VERY GOOD.
And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. - Matthew 10:28
Who can destroy your body and soul? Only God. (Not Satan) However, God does not send you to hell, you do that when you disobey God. However, God created hell, aka. the lake of fire, the second death (Revelation 21:8).
You can be rescued. Jesus Christ (God) died on the cross to save all those who believe in Him... all those who trust Him to pay their just penalty for disobeying God.
Trust in Jesus and you'll know your time on earth is like a wisp of smoke that vanishes in the wind. Trust that Jesus did pay YOUR penalty for sin. Repent. Turn away from disobeying God.
Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved. (Acts 16:31) and there will no longer be a reason for worry or anxiety.
