In The Thick Of It – Bryan Hutson

A few mornings ago, this verse popped up in my Bible App…
Psalm 91:15

“He will call on me,

and I will answer him;

I will be with him in trouble,

I will deliver him and honor him.”

God is with us in the good times as well as the bad. Yes, many times it seems that the bad outweighs the good. I’ve had “fair weather friends” who would be right there with me while times were good, but would “get outta dodge” at the first sign of trouble.

I’m thankful that our Heavenly Father is NOT like that. When the difficult times come, God is STILL with us. He will NOT leave or forsake us.

Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.”

It gets even better… He doesn’t stand back and WATCH us while we struggle. He doesn’t create us and leave us to our own devices. He is not merely a spectator in our lives. This verse CLEARLY says, that God will be WITH us IN the trouble. Yeah, right there “In The Thick Of It.”

He will deliver AND honor us.

Now, does God always deliver us FROM the trouble? No. What this means is sometimes He will deliver us FROM it, sometimes He delivers us THROUGH it.

He will honor us. Wow. God honoring us? What do we have that is worthy of honor? On my own, I have nothing. Yet, with Christ and Him living and dwelling IN me, God sees me worthy.

Friend, I don’t know what you are facing. I don’t know if you’re battling depression, the loss of a spouse, marital issues, a sickness or if God is preparing you for a big storm.

But, let me assure you.. God will not leave you. He will be there with you, in the trouble.

He has proven this promise to be TRUE. 

Psalm 23:4 “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”

Be encouraged and pray this prayer..

“Father, I need You. I feel overwhelmed by this situation, yet Your Word says that when I call, You will answer. It also says that You will be with me IN the trouble. Lord, I need to feel Your comfort and peace. Deliver and honor me Father, as I honor You through this situation and with my life. In Jesus name. Amen.”

Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as, the site was birthed from an email discussion group by the same name. The SoGospelNews email discussion list was created by the Unthanks after the Singing News shut down its extremely popular discussion list. SoGospelNews started as a simple webpage listing artists, fans, individuals, etc. that were avid supporters of the newly formed SoGospelNews talk list. The site eventually took on printing news for Southern Gospel artists, and eventually took on reviewing the latest recordings from both signed and independent artists within the small genre. SoGospelNews became the most viewed Southern Gospel website on the Internet with over 4,000,000 hits per month.

The Unthank family are now involved in the site, as well as the addition of over two dozen staff writers. The website is based out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In April 2010, SoGospelNews changed its name to The name change allows them to cover news items of not only Southern Gospel, but also Country Gospel, Inspirational, and Black Gospel.

On January 5, 2011, Susan Unthank passed away, leaving the website in control of Deon, their son, Chris, and their daughter Amy.
