TOPIC: PROMISES FOR PERILOUS TIMES
TEXT: ISAIAH 41:10-17
MEMORY VERSE: “When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them” (ISAIAH 41:17).
Jim Feeney asserted, “We live in perilous times in a dangerous world. God’s protection from harm is a reassuring promise in the face of the dangers we face”.
The Bible is replete with God’s miraculous deliverance of His people in perilous times. Joseph walked out of prison to become a Prime Minister; the Israelites walked through the Red Sea on dry land; Daniel was delivered from lions in the lions’ den. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the midst of the fiery furnace unhurt, and Paul was delivered from shipwreck. God provided water and food enough in the wilderness for Israel. He is still the same and will deliver Christian youths in perilous times.
In our text, God promises not to forsake you in times of trouble. You may be facing family, academic, financial, or health challenges. No matter their intensity, call upon the Lord, He will answer and deliver you. Hold firmly unto God, meditate on and obey His Word. God will not forsake you in perilous times.
QUOTE: God will not forsake you.
