Proverbs 9:9-10

 Verse of the day:      

“The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time.  For the Lord protects the bones of the righteous; not one of them is broken!” (Psalm 34:19-20 NLT)


Often there is a misconception that when you live your life as a Christian that you are shielded from going through troubles. If you google “Why do bad things happen to good people?” you will find many people have written articles, blog posts, and even books trying to understand why living a moral life is not enough to ensure protection against troubles. I’m not sure where this misconception got its start but it is not something that we were every promised in the Bible—at least as long as we remain on Earth. 

 

The truth is the moral person, the righteous person, the Christ follower will face many troubles throughout their life, BUT God comes to their rescue each time. What you are spared as a believer is far from many of the consequences that you naturally face when you are living an immoral life. 

 

No matter what we face or how helpless the situation may seem God is there on the scene. I love what verse 20 says, “For the Lord protects the bones of the righteous; not one of them is broken!” We will face pressure, but He will not let us be broken.

 

Are you going through a hard time and asking, “Why me?!” or “What did I do wrong?!” Take comfort in knowing that no matter how much pressure or hardship you may be facing God will not let you be crushed and He will rescue you each time—not some of the time—but each time!
