“For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the LORD.”
The word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah (v15), telling him to go and speak these words to Ebedmelech the Ethiopian (v16). The Lord promises to deliver Ebedmelech’s life. He make this promise because he put his trust in the Lord when he delivered Jeremiah out of the dungeon (38:7-13).
Lord, thank You for saving those that put their trust in You. Thank You for saving me, Lord. Help me to carry Your message of love and salvation to the lost of this world.
