God Delivers! Devotion

With so many people suffering across the US from the recession, lots of families are struggling with the continual rise of gas prices, loss of jobs, and the lack of decent and affordable health insurance. I want to remind you of a few things.

"The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of ALL their troubles." Psalm 34:17

It doesn't say some, a few, a couple, one or two, but ALL their troubles. If you belong to God, for that is who the righteous are, He has given us this promise. While it doesn't say when He will deliver us, it does say that he will deliver us. So hang in there, continually pray for our country as we are in a spiritual battle during this election year.
Also, don't worry that you don't have enough faith. Jesus said you only need enough faith as a grain of a mustard seed. That is a small amount. Remember this when you feel weak:
"If we are faithless, He remains faithful. He cannot deny Himself." 1 Timothy 2:13
God will do for us, what we cannot do for ourselves. He understands that we are sometimes weak. It says without faith it is impossible to please God, well if you have enough faith to believe you are His, then you have enough faith to please God. He will help you with the rest. Simply ask Him.
