The Lord Shall Help
The entire Bible is a book full of encouragement, guidance, and comfort for us. God gave us this wonderful Living Book for us to read, not just in our time of need, but every day for spiritual guidance and growth. Throughout His Word, we see that we can have victory in life and overcome the fiery darts that the devil may try to throw at us, but the key to having this victory is trusting in God. God is our salvation, not just for our eternal life, but for help from day to day. As it says in this verse, He will deliver us from the wicked. The wicked is not just the devil but is also the fiery darts the devil tries to throw at us like fear, doubt, discouragement, and defeat. Joshua learned to trust God when he was instructed to walk around the walls of Jericho for victory. It didn't make sense, but he trusted God knowing that He had the right plan. We, too, need to trust God, even in the valleys and hard times, knowing that God has a plan and all we have to do is follow Him. Many people don't rely on God for strength and guidance except after they have tried in their own strength. God will help you, not just in your time of need but throughout all aspects of your life. Joshua saw the victory when he trusted God, and you can see victory too in your life when you trust Him.
