God Guides Us Through Trouble

Yesterday, we read how Haman built a gallows on which to hang Mordecai. God turned it around and Haman was hung on them, see Esther 7:9-10.

Proverbs 26:27, “Whoever digs a pit will fall into it; if someone rolls a stone, it will roll back on them.” New International Version

God delivered the Jews returning to Jerusalem the same way. It does not say they were not attacked or victims of ambushes. It says God delivered them from them.

Ezra 8:31, “…The hand of our God was upon us, and he delivered us from the hand of the attacker and the ambushes along the way.” Modern English Version

“God doesn’t promise to guard you from trouble; He promises to guide you through it.” Steven Furtick

My cousin, Bonnie, is on day #13 of being in the hospital with her sick daughter, Aimee. She has been in and out of ICU and is gravely ill.This is a long ordeal for them, but I know God is walking beside them guiding them through it. Today she posted:

“Aimee and I feel your prayers and we feel God’s presence….Keep covering her in your prayers because our God is awesome and amazing and is teaching us to be patient and trust in His ultimate wisdom.”
