Psalm 91:14-16 ” Because he loves Me, says the Lord, I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges My Name. He will 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.”

There is great hope and reassurance in the promises of God in this passage. He not only promises us that He will rescue, protect, and deliver us from the tribulations that come into our lives…but He promises He will be with us in the middle of them. Too often when affliction, pain, and distress attacks, our minds become dulled by exhaustion, depression, and stress. And as our world becomes smaller and smaller with each anguish-filled day, it can become very easy to view God as some far off Deity watching in disinterest. But it tells us here that it’s quite the opposite…God is slogging through all the tears, anxiety, and cries of desperation right alongside us…suffering as we suffer…His compassion and mercy flowing out of Him for us.
