David, the sweet psalmist of Israel, penned the following words in Psalm 44:1-3: “We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.  How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out. For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favor unto them.”  Many of us who have walked with God for a good period of time have heard stories told by our mothers and fathers in the gospel.  These stories were of how God made ways for them out of no way, how he healed their bodies, delivered them from their enemies, was a lawyer in the court room, met their financial blessings, etc.  However, we can tend to feel that the Lord will not do the same for us.  One of the main times that this feeling occurs is when things don’t happen as soon as we would like.  It also happens when we compare ourselves to others.  We must all remember that we are all special in the sight of God and that he has a purpose for each one of our lives.  With that in mind we can be assured that all of our needs and deliverances will happen in a timely manner.  Jesus is a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1), with no respect of persons.  If we trust him, we will have our own stories to pass along due to the things that he will have done for us.
