God Delivers

Previous posts in this series can be found here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5.

The righteous person may have many troubles,
     but the LORD delivers him from them all;
He protects all his bones,
     not one of them will be condemned.

Evil will slay the wicked;
     the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
The LORD will rescue His servants;
     no one who takes refuge in Him will be condemned.
                                                           Psalm 34:19-22

No matter what challenge comes our way, God promises that He will deliver us from them. We will not be destroyed by whatever it is.

But the way God delivers us from those challenges may not look like we expect. God delivering David didn't mean that God took Saul out of the picture. David was still on the run from Saul. It took time for David to become king of Israel. But, even during this time, David was sure that God would deliver him from his troubles.

We live with the same reality. God delivering us from all our troubles may not be immediate. It might take time. We might have to be patient while we walk through challenges. God doesn't promise that He will deliver us immediately. He promises that He will deliver us. We just may have to wait for God's timing because, even if it doesn't look ideal to us, it is best.
