More Than Bread Devotional for 5/2/12

39 The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
he is their stronghold in the time of trouble.
40 The Lord helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.  – Psalm 37:39-40

Trouble.  It is inevitable in this life.  Jesus promised we would have it and so we do.  Those who forsake God because they experience difficulty in life have clearly not read the whole Book.  Our relationship with God should flourish in difficulty as we experience the goodness He has for us in those times.  Take refuge in Him and find rest for your soul in times of distress and grief.  He will be your strong tower.
