Daily Devotional-Trusting God’s Deliverance Scriptures-When Nothing Is In Your Favor
The truth is there are times in our life when everything seems beyond our control. Yet we know beyond doubt that for whatever reason we are going through something we do not know exactly how to handle. There are times when we think we must obey those that have the rule over us, whether we agree with it or not.
However, there may be times, we must step up to the plate and refuse to do what is absolutely not the right thing to do. I did this once. Yes, it cost me and I suffered the consequences that were not easy, however, in the end, I won. I felt good inside because I refused to hurt someone else with the actions of another individual. The Lord always takes care of those who put their trust in Him.

Life is sometimes unfair, but doing the right thing is always in style.
