Focus: Psalms 34:19 NLT
“The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time.”
When we face trouble, the NT writer James said count it all joy. The OT writer David knew this and he writes the passage above. If we indeed understand how God works on earth, you would see that God uses trouble to develop our faith. That is why He is the author and Finisher of our faith! When we have faith in Him, He comes to the rescue each time - even if we "seem" to fail! This must be so because of why God allows the presence of sin - Free Agency dictates it. So sometimes God must let us fail to rescue us even from our sinful selves. Trust God. He has it all under control and His WORD never returns to Him void. Praise Him!
