The scripture for today, November 8 (11/8), is Proverbs 11:8 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“The righteous man is rescued from trouble, and it comes on the wicked instead.”
We know that God does not always rescue us from trouble here on this temporary earth. He certainly didn’t rescue Jesus all the time. Sometimes God has an assignment for us to be in the midst of trouble so we can demonstrate the contrast ~ God’s ways and Satan’s ways.
But eventually in eternity, if we have followed God’s ways, he will indeed rescue us from trouble. He will indeed welcome us into his home ~ heaven.
So, fight on. Persist. Stand firm. Do the right thing. Win. Then rest.
