How many times have I said that God came to my rescue? More than I can count. How many times has God saved and I was unaware of it? I think it has happened a lot and it is still happening. Just because we don’t see God in action in our lives doesn’t mean that He is not actively protecting us and saving us. I have to remind myself of that truth. Sometimes I find out after the fact that God had come to my rescue. God is not a passive God. He cares about us and He wants to protect us. I believe God has protected me from myself more times than I would like to admit. There were decisions I made that just didn’t make sense. There are steps I have taken that set me back and made my walk with God more difficult. God has never given up on me even when I was ready to give up on myself. God has never stopped smiling at me and loving me. That is who He is. That is what He does. He loves us steadily and He blesses us steadily. Have you noticed how God comes to your rescue? His love for you moves Him in your direction. He doesn’t walk away from you. He walks with you. God will come to your rescue as He is standing right next to you. He is not flying in from far away. All you have to do is look in His direction, call on Him and know that He is there for you. If you are going through a tough time right now, I want to tell you that God will come to the rescue. God will get you through whatever you are going through. He can handle it. He can change it. He can fix it.
God rescues those who call upon His name. He rescues the weak and the needy. When you are suffering or when you are having a hard time, you fall under the category of the weak and the needy. God can meet your needs and what you might be needing now is His help, His love, His comfort, His direction and His ability to deliver you. He can do all that for you. He can be all that to you. To me God is my Savior and my Deliverer. He takes me from a place of need to a place of thriving. He takes all my fears and insecurities and changes them into peace and joy. When God comes to our rescue, He works on us first. He tells us not to worry and not to fear. He calms us down with His Word and He puts us at ease. It is hard to think when our hearts are troubled so He makes sure that we slow down and we focus on what matters. What matters is that He is there and He always keeps His Word. Friend, you are going to make it because the Lord is coming to your rescue. He is holding you now and telling you with the power of His love that you are going to be more than ok. Things are going to turn around for you. He is going to bless you, help you and deliver you. Your current miserable conditions are not permanent. When God comes to the rescue, every knee has to bow and everything has to succumb to Him including your dreadful circumstances.
God will answer you. God will intervene and get you out of the ditch. The valley that you are going through is just a place of transition. You are not going to stay there and you are not going to live there. Fight any thought that is telling you that you won’t get out of debt, that you won’t get out of the pain and that you won’t get out of this state of chaos and confusion. The Lord can remove all the pain and the hurdles. Keep turning to Him. Don’t give up. Don’t get discouraged. The simple fact that you are reading this message shows that there is hope because God is talking to you through these words of encouragement. You have seen nothing yet. Maybe you have been in this situation for many years and you don’t know what it’s like to be free. However, where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. His freedom is going to impact your life. You are going to change and your life is going to change. Hold on to hope. God is coming to your rescue and you are going to experience things you have never seen before. You are going to live with a peace that you never knew before and you are going to be filled with a joy that you never knew existed. It is not over. God is not done with you. He will rescue you. Thank Him in advance. Thank Him because He started working on your problems before you prayed to Him. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
