If one is trapped inside an elevator in a burning building, an outside fireman who can force the door open is preferable to a fellow victim who is also trapped but understands the problem.
~ Michael C. Horton, A Place for Weakness
You want a God who understands you, right?
Who feels your pain.
Who can sympathize in your struggles.
You have that (Hebrews 4:15).
But it’s not enough.
You also want a God who can save you.
You have that too.
The LORD your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.

Have you taken time today to praise him for who he is and what he’s done?
