The scripture for today, November 8 (11/8), is Proverbs 11:8 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
We know that God does not always rescue us from trouble here on this temporary earth. He certainly didn’t rescue Jesus from all his troubles.
Sometimes God has an assignment for you just as he did for Jesus. He may want you to be in the midst of trouble ~ war, an enemy at work, an obnoxious neighbor, death of a loved one caused by a reckless driver, a government worker demanding a bribe ~ so you can demonstrate to the world the contrast: God’s ways vs. Satan’s ways.
Eventually, the boomerang effect will take place on those following Satan. What they inflict on you will be inflicted on them.
And eventually, if you have followed God’s ways even in times of trouble, he will indeed rescue you. He will welcome you into his home ~ heaven ~ safe for all eternity.
