But I

The righteous man is rescued from trouble, and it comes on the wicked instead. Proverbs 11:8

It’s verses like this that I am tempted to skip, because, quite frankly, it’s troubling. It’s troubling because my experience in the real world does not play so nicely. I see bad people prospering, good people going through very hard times, even being persecuted for their faith, so what gives? I suspect your experience is similar. In fact, Jesus himself said, “in this world you will have tribulation…” How’s that for encouraging us!!

But He goes further, doesn’t He?

“But I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

Who do you think does the rescuing?
