The Lord Delivers

“The righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.”

Psalm 34:19

I heard a very interesting interview on the radio this week, with a 27-year-old Australian man named Nick Vujicic (pronounced Voy-a-chich). Born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia, Nick came into the world with neither arms nor legs absent any medical explanation or warning. Imagine the implications of such a fate! Think of the challenges you would face in almost every area of life.

Yet, despite his situation, Nick has risen to become a phenomenally successful international motivational speaker and author. His ministry has seen over 500,000 people come to faith in Christ in 19 different countries!

As you can imagine, I find Nick’s story profoundly compelling! It has informed each disappointment I’ve faced over the course of the week. What’s more, it has caused me to consider how God gives us the grace we need to deal with the realities before us. Whether we lack limbs or likely job prospects, we can be sure that God will meet our needs. While this can be difficult to embrace in the depth of suffering or disappointment, it’s always encouraging to see it happening in the life of another.

If you’d like more info on Nick, check out his blogs: Life Without Limbs and Attitude is Altitude.
