There are two things you count on in these last days;
One; Trouble and more trouble is coming your way, “because the devil is come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but only a short time left,” Revelation 12:12.
It does not matter if you are saved or unsaved, everyone will experience trouble. But I will always remind every human that they are children children of My creation by making My sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sending rain on the just and on the unjust, Matthew 5:45.
Two; If you have been taking care of the poor, I will deliver you in your time of trouble, Psalm 41:1.
These two things you can count on! However it’s not always the devil that causes your trouble.
If you are a believer and start to wander away from Me, “I will cause you trouble too. I can make your soul melt because of trouble.  You will reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, until you come to your wits’ end.  I do this for one reason, so that you will cry out to Me in your trouble, and I can bring you out of your distresses.  I will make the storm a calm again, so that the waves are still.  You will be glad because they are quiet; and I will bring you back into the place I called you too.  Oh, that in your good times you would not wander, but you would learn to praise Me for My goodness, and declare My wonderful works to the children of men!” Psalm 107:26-31.
Bottom line: it is impossible to stay completely out of trouble but when the righteous cry out, I the Lord will hear, and deliver them out of all their troubles.  I am always near them that are of a broken heart; and save those that have a contrite spirit.  Remember, you that are saved will have many afflictions: but as your Lord, I will deliver you out of them all, that’s a promise, Psalm 34:17-19.
