I Will  Rescue Him

Psalm 91 is a psalm  of great comfort.     It tells about  God’s promise  to be with  and protect  all those  who trust  in Him.     But,  we also read  in many parts  of the Bible  that God’s prophets  and believers  have undergone many trials,  tortures,  and death.     In Psalm 91:14-16,  God specifically promises  His faithful ones,

Because he  has loved Me,  therefore  I will deliver him;
I will set him  securely  on high,  because he  has known  My name.

He will call upon Me,  and I will answer him;
I will be  with him  in trouble;
I will rescue him  and honor him.

With a long life  I will satisfy him
And let him  see My salvation.

So,  how have those  who have been killed  for their faith  been delivered?

In all the trials  and persecutions  that God’s children go through,  God keeps their faith safe,  so that their eternal salvation  is never  in danger.     Every single Christian life  is lived  to do the work  God intended  for that Christian.     When death comes,  it means  that God’s purpose  for that Christian  has been accomplished.    It is time  to go home  —  to heaven.     At that moment  all the troubles  and persecutions  for that Christian  are over.

During the Christian’s lifetime,  he was able  to overcome the spiritual attacks  of the evil one  and remain  in the true faith  “because he has loved”  God.     So God protected him because  he accepted  God’s grace  and salvation.     Through every trouble,  God sustained him  in the truth.     The faithful are rewarded with  “a long life”  in eternity  where they will be forever  face to face  with the LORD  in all His glory.

We are  to know  that we are  “delivered”,  set  “securely on high”“rescued”,  and satisfied  with a  “long life”.     Trusting God’s promises,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for keeping us safe.”

Love,
Margaret
