Are we in great trouble? There is a promise: "I will be with him in trouble." (Ps. 91)
God does not bring His people into troubles, and leave them there. He will stand by them; He will hold their heads and hearts when they are fainting. And there is another promise, "He is their strength in the time of trouble." (Ps. 37)
"Oh," says the soul, "I shall faint in the day of trial." But God will be the strength of our hearts; He will join His forces with us. Either He will make His hand lighter, or our faith stronger.
--All Things for Good, Thomas Watson
