This is a great promise. I don’t know about you, but there are times when I feel like the world is crashing down on me. It could be a family problem, something at work, a random event of the day. My tendency is to get consumed with worry. This tells me I can have a confidence in the outcome. I will be “delivered” (2502a). We find a familiar restatement of this in the NT:
(1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV) There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.Of course there is a condition. I am to be righteous. This obviously does not mean that there can be no flaws in my behavior. If that were what it meant, no one would qualify. For some insight on why I can say that look at little further in this chapter.
(Proverbs 11:27 NASB) He who diligently seeks good seeks favor, But he who seeks evil, evil will come to him.This is a theme that is repeated frequently in Proverbs.
So hang in there. Have confidence in the alertness and promises of God. If you noticed a problem, the chances are He saw it too.
