I am thankful that in times of trouble, I don’t have to panic or be full of despair. God’s word says He will deliver me (and you), so be of good cheer. If I want God to be the God of my troubles, I must also allow Him to be God of my heart. I’m thankful for the choice to seek Him in refuge.
2And he said, the LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer.
2 Samuel 22:2
19Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
1God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways,
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
