Need Divine Intervention?

We all find ourselves needing divine intervention at times. I've talked to several people recently who have various trials they are facing: job layoffs, financial hardships, family discord, health issues......you name it. I've found where God makes several promises in His word. Psalm 91:14-16 says, "Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name. He shall call upon Me and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation."

God makes 3 promises here: He will be with us, He will deliver us and honor us and, He will grant us long life and will show us His salvation. Pretty straight forward, isn't it?

If God could do a Star-Trek like appearance in front of us, I think He would say something like this, "No matter what you're going through at this moment, it will pass sooner or later. Someday it will be all over and done with. But in the meantime, put your cares and concerns on My back and trust Me to work out everything for the best."

Amen to that! That is just what I needed today. I just finished blogging about being frustrated with "life" in general-the stresses of being a mom and still showing your Christianity when frustrated. Boy did I need to read that today!! Thanks for sharing.
