“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. 15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him (Psalm 91:14-15)
The news fills our mind with dangers: murders, rapes, wars, terrorists, accidents, earthquakes, floods, typhoons, tornados, sickness… The list of dangerous things we face is long. Christians are impacted by these dangers, with one difference. God is with us. He often delivers us from danger. Or He gives us the strength to endure danger. I love the promise in Psalm 91. God promises to be with us in times of trouble. Those times come to us all. Does it make any difference to know that God is with us? It makes all the difference in the world! Does it make any difference to know that God knows what we are going through and that He cares? It makes all the difference in the world! Some go through life without faith. I pity them. I don’t know how they survive. I prefer to hold on to God/s promise, “I will be with (you) in trouble.”
Thank You, Father, for Your promise to be with me when life is hard. Thank You for Your love which is unfailing. I know I can always depend on You when all else fails. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
