“Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” – 1 Corinthians 10:11.
Remembering and recalling of miraculous acts of God in ancient times do build and strengthen the faith of worshippers in the Almightiness of our Creator. The understanding should be built on the premise that, “since God did such things in the past, there is every reason to believe He could still do so today”.
Some occasions when God Almighty showed Himself to be “a stronghold in the day of trouble” to His worshippers include: His miraculous deliverance of King Hezekiah and his people during the time that Senacherib, King of Assyria, besieged Jerusalem, (Isaiah 37:33-38), and His Wonderful deliverance of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, in Babylon under King Nebuchadnezzar, that made the King to declare: “There is no other God that can deliver after this sort” (Daniel 3:1-7; 16-18; 28, 29) Also, God's deliverance for Paul and Silas who had been imprisoned on false charges resulting in the conversion of the jailer and his family. (Acts. 16:16-34) From these instances, it is clear that God Almighty is willing and able to save us from any adversity, as long as we show faith in Him. Truly, “The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.” – Nahum 1:7.
