We are living in troubled times. Have you noticed? Everything that happens in the world seems to provoke someone somewhere to protest, riot, or commit some form of violence.
It can be unsettling to those who wish to lead their lives peacefully. The Bible fortells our day. Did you know that? In fact, in the pages of the Bible you can read about people from many generations who have faced times of distress and found ultimate peace and victory through God and His Son, Jesus the Christ.
See the words of King David:
"O Lord, our God, you are my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer. You are the Rock where I am safe. You are my shield, my powerful weapon, and my place of shelter. You rescue me and keep me safe...You rescued me from enemies who were hateful and too powerful for me...When I was fenced in you rescued me because you loved and delighted in me." 2 Samuel 22: 2, 3,18, 20
God's love is as constant today as it ever was. His power to save and deliver knows no end. If you know Him you know He never leaves us of forsakes us. Let God's word encourage you today in your troubled times. When people seem cruel and uncivilized, remember that God is with you. Call on Him today.
