1. Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
2. The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.
This passage really resonatges with me, because I can relate to it. I remember when I was finishing my 9 year federal prison term. I was a Christian by now. I was in a holding cell, awaiting deportation to Poland. There was a Mexican national with me, awaiting deportation to Mexico.
I had about $270 in my pocket. The Mexican guy mentioned that he had no money for the bus to get from the location of his deportation to his home, which cost $15. I happily gave him the money for his bus ticket.
There are blessings in giving; and I knew that I would need all the divine help that I could get in days ahead. I was getting deported to a country that I knew nearly nothing about. I was born there, but left with my family when I was three years old. However, I’m happy to say that God didn’t let me down.
My deportation took place over two years. Currently, I am the owner of a flat worth over $50,000 and I have a steady income. God is good.
