Psalms 50:15 - And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
Could it be that a life void of trouble would also be a life void of glorifying God? Would we ever know deliverance if we never knew trouble?
God allows trouble in our lives to create a platform from which he can be glorified. He is glorified in the deliverance he provides. It matters not whether the deliverance comes in the form of "rescue from" the trouble or "grace to bear" the trouble he is glorified.
In the day of trouble calling upon God should be our first response. If it is our first response then God will likely be the first responder. He says if we call he will deliver. Expect it to be so. Believe it to be so. It is not mind over matter. It is faith in the promise of God. Don't dictate the means of deliverance simply be prepared to accept the provision of deliverance. Be prepared to glorify the God of deliverance.
At no time are we more motivated to glorify God than when we are keenly aware of a great deliverance at his hand. It is our troubles that set the stage for our glorifying him.
