Search & Rescue

Description

God's plan is not to leave you in the middle of pain and hardship forever. The truth is, He will rescue you.

2 Corinthians 1:10

"And he did rescue us from mortal danger, and he will rescue us again. We have placed our confidence in him, and he will continue to rescue us." NLT

Often when we are walking in the midst of a suffering, we may believe that God will rescue us, but it's still difficult to fully trust Him. As we read the verse above, it's almost like God knew we would struggle to trust Him and so He makes sure to emphasize His ability to rescue. In 2 Corinthians 1:10, Paul writes of rescue three times:

Did rescue
Will rescue
Will continue to rescue

You see friend, God's plan is not to leave us in the middle of pain and hardship forever. He won't allow us to walk into a dark valley and then leave us there to wander aimlessly without end. The truth is, HE WILL RESCUE. In fact, even if we were to walk in suffering the rest of our lives, we can know as a follower of Christ that He will rescue when He comes again. When we realize this, we don't really need to know why He is doing it, but only that we can trust He is in control and will be with us until the end. Whatever door He opens or whatever door He closes, we can trust Him. He is good, all the time.

Life Lesson: Our faith is really growing when we don't know what God is doing, and we still trust Him.

Dear God,
Thank You for Your love that is so great that You would rescue me in my times of need. I also thank You for using my hard times for my benefit. Help me not to despair in difficult times but rather to rejoice because I know that my rescue is on the way. In Jesus' name, Amen.
