“Rescue me from the mire, do not let me sink; deliver me from those who hate me, from the deep waters.” (Psalm 69:14 NIV)
Recently, my wife and I took a beach break for a few days. We stayed in Daytona and visited the local beaches including the Canaveral National Seashore park in Titusville, Florida.
Early one morning, I watched as the lifeguards went through their training exercises of swimming and running. You see, in order to be able to save a life you must be trained and fit to do the job; and so it is for believers in Christ.
"As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is with them, so will I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness." (Ezekiel 34:12 NIV)
We must all be prepared to go into the deep waters and stormy seas of the spiritual battle.
"He rescues me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though many oppose me." (Psalm 55:18 NIV)
"Though the tide of battle runs strongly against me, for so many are fighting me, yet he will rescue me." (Psalm 55:18 TLB)
The Lord tells us to rescue.
"Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter." (Proverbs 24:11 NIV)
"He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave." (Psalm 107:20 NIV)
