He Delivers. Period.
From Psalm 7
Hope from Today's Reading:
"O Lord my God, in you do I take refuge; save me from all my pursuers and deliver me." (Psalm 7:1 ESV)
Later in this chapter, the psalmist writes of the wicked man, "He makes a pit, digging it out, and falls into the hole that he has made" (v. 15), and I realized while reading it, God can save me from this too. Sometimes, I'm my own worst "pursuer," my own worst enemy. I make poor decisions, out of fear or insecurity, and suffer consequences that I know are my fault.
But God can deliver me. Period. When I turn around and turn to Him (the meaning of "repent" in verse 12), He's there waiting, rope in hand.
