Trust in God

For I will certainly rescue you, and you will not fall by the sword; but you will have your own life as booty, because you have trusted in Me,” declares the LORD.'” Jeremiah 39:18

Jerusalem was once again being overtaken, it says “They (Chaldeans) tore down the walls of Jerusalem (Jeremiah 39:8) Death and destruction was imminent for Jeremiah, however God said “because you have trusted me I will save your life”

We need to understand even if the darkest hour of our life, God is still in control. We need to trust in him and he will rescue us. Even when the walls come tumbling down and everything is set of fire around us, God is still with us!

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? Romans 8:31

The Apostle Paul lived and preached the same message. While he preached the gospel, many imprisoned him, beat him, and even tried to kill him. But God would continually deliver Paul because he trusted in God. Once Paul was thought to be stoned to death but he lived, once Paul was bitten by a poisonous snake and he lived. God will rescue those who trust in him.

Now you might say , Paul died from being beheaded. Yes Paul died a martyrs death, why would God allow this? For Paul to be a witness that the gospel of Jesus Christ, why else would Paul and the Apostles willingly die?

In the midst of your storm, God is in complete control. Put your trust in him, he will give you eternal life in Jesus Name Amen!

    I remember one beating in particular that Paul received where they left him on the outskirts of town really believing he was dead but yet he lived through showing God’s grace and strength. So very amazing.

    This reminds me of 1 Corinthians 10:13 which says, “But God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear, but along with the temptation he will also make the way out so that you may be able to endure it.” I try to always keep this in mind. Jehovah knows how strong we are even when we don’t see our own strength and he gives us exactly what we need at the right time. Sometimes “making the way out” is providing us the strength we need to endure, other times we lose our lives with our integrity intact. Either way we are sure to gain the prize of entering into God’s Kingdom.
