Psalm 35: 9-10 ” Then my soul will rejoice in the Lord and delight in His salvation. My whole being will exclaim, ‘Who is like You, O Lord? You rescue the poor from those too strong for them, the poor and needy from those who rob them.’ “

Here’s a thought I heard yesterday that you may be guilty of…I sure am.  You’re praying for someone and you ask the Lord to “be with them during this difficult time.”  Do you realize just how wrong that statement is?  God hasn’t gone anywhere, and He will never forsake the poor or needy. (Isaiah 41:17)  Now it may seem like He’s far away to us, but He’s not…and in our mind it may appear that things are getting worse instead of better…but it could simply be that we aren’t seeing what we think should be happening.  God promises deliverance from our enemies as we focus on Him and not our circumstances.  Psalm 18:17 says, “He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me.”  Our hope then must come from God alone…for He promises He will never leave us nor forsake us.
