A newly female Christian asks, “Can God rescue me from any situations or bad people?” The answer is yes! She asks curiously, “How can God rescue me?” Let’s find out what God says in the Bible.
Can God Rescue You From Any Situations Or Bad People?
David was terrified when Saul ordered his soldiers to kill him at his house. In the Bible, David wrote Psalm 59:
Rescue me from my enemies, O God.
Protect me from those who have come to destroy me. (Psalm 59:1, NLT)
Perhaps, you have your enemies from all over the world. You may be feeling scared when people keep insulting or bullying you. You may get calls on your phone with ugly messages or get threatening mails from people. However, you want to figure out how to stop your enemies from harming (or threatening) you.
Wait… Can you ask God to come rescue you? I am sure that He can do this.
How Can God Rescue You?
Do you know who Jonah was? God told Jonah to go to Nineveh to help people to repent or suffer death. Instead of that, he went off on the path differently and directed to the fisherman’s boat to avoid God’s call.
Somehow, God made a very heavy wind and storm, which caused the ship to sink; however, the captain screamed out for God. But, Jonah was silent and he made a confession to the captain and crew on the ship that he ignored God’s call. At last, Jonah suggested the crew to throw him off from the ship. So God stopped the storm and ordered a large fish to swallow Jonah. He stayed in the belly for three days.
During three days, Jonah realized how God called on him. Finally, Jonah repented and then he asked for God’s forgiveness. After repenting and forgiving, God came to rescue him out of the big fish’s mouth. So Jonah followed Him and obeyed God’s commands.
Today, God encourages you to repent and forgive if you have any sins in your past life. And you know God loves you and encourages you to not be afraid of your enemies, He is glad to come help rescue you in any situations where you are now.
But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one. (2 Thess. 3:3, NLT)
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.(1 Peter 5:7, NLT).
More importantly, praying is the most powerful key to ask God for His help. God listens to your prayer, you know that? In the Bible, “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7. NLT).
I am confident in God that He will come to rescue us from any terrible situations or bad people.

Hi Joyce! Thanks for sharing your encouragement on how God can rescue us. I love that you used Jonah, because people often times just talk about his running away. I thought your thoughts – thanks for the linkup today.
I am so glad that God can use us right where we are to be a vessel to reach others with His love! Thanks for sharing with #BVN!
