We all have a choice to believe in something, I choose to believe in God!

I'm moving forward with the good news. My previous posts have eluded to some difficulties in my life, and in particular, "the pickle" I was in. Well, the "pickle problem" is resolved as well as all the others, in their entirety and completely! I can give myself none of the glory for I have no idea how these things resolved themselves. I can't say I did anything to resolve them other than feel the compelling of the Holy Spirit to guide me to the places I should go to in order to get the resolve I needed. If I was without the Lord, would I have been able to do as well?

Which brings me to how I see myself in this situation. I see myself as Jeremiah was when they threw him into the dungeon and he sunk in the mire. (Jeremiah chpt 38). First was the help that was compelled to him in Jeremiah 38:9. Then was the command given by order of the King (in my mind it's the Lord) in verse 10 and the King commands that it be done, "....before he die.." It was a command to take 30 men (isn't that the same number assigned to the pieces of silver that Judas betrayed Jesus for? hm). And then the most interesting thing is that they didn't just throw down a rope, but fashioned something comfortable for him to put under his arms so as to free him without harming him, in verse 11.

Isn't that just like the Lord in a situation? He sends more than enough help, sends it before you can't take anymore and you think it's over (in the dramatic proverbial way), and then the release from the mire you've sunk in is rather comfortable as he gently pulls you out. That's the God I know. I give Him all glory for hearing my cries from the dungeon of my life. I give Him all praise for seeing me worthy of rescue. I give Him all thanks for gently pulling me free and setting me in a safe place where there's hope.
