=A young boy was sitting on the roof of his home watching his father repair a leak in the shingles. Not realizing the steep pitch of the roof, he began to inch his way upward and suddenly started to slide downward. Realizing the danger of his situation he shouted, “O God, help me I’m in trouble and I’m going to fall to my death!”
Suddenly his jeans became snagged on a nail and he stopped sliding. Looking upward he said, “Thanks God, I’m all right now!”
Who do you call upon when you are suddenly faced with a life threatening situation? We often have a loved one whom we can call upon in a moment’s notice. Most of us are blessed with a few faithful friends who respond immediately in times of disaster. But when we are suddenly and without warning faced with what appears to be an imminent disaster, what then?
Fortunately, our God has promised us that we will never face any adversity alone. Again and again His Word assures us that He is ready, willing and able to rescue us when we are in trouble. He is always alert, awaiting our call and anxious to respond.
Prayer: Father, we are grateful for Your promise that we can always “call upon You in the day of trouble.” In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Psalm 50:15 Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”
