Daily Devotional for February 14
The righteous face many troubles, but the Lord rescues them from each and every one.
Troubles come in many forms, shapes, and sizes and include anything that disturbs the peace and tranquility of your life. Two things must be expected when you follow the Lord: First, the devil will throw his fiery darts to try to discourage you through troubling circumstances. Second, no matter the affliction, the Lord will deliver you. How does He do it? The Word of God says, “The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right; his ears are open to their cries for help” (Psalm 34:15). Furthermore, “The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles” (v. 17). The Lord is watching you and listening to you when you walk through difficulties, and He is eager to rescue you from any trouble. The disciples faced the deepest despair and trouble of their lives after the crucifixion of Christ. Little did they know, however, that God had a plan and was going to resurrect Christ! That’s the way it is for us, too. We don’t always realize that God is in control in every circumstance of life and has a plan of resurrection waiting to unfold. When you see the “trouble” side in life, hang in there. You will surely see the “delivering” side as well!
