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.

“O Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.”
This is a prophetic scripture. The reason I say that is because it points forward to the resurrection of Jesus. There are many scriptures like this in the Bible. Scriptures which touch on Jesus life and ministry, someway. And that is why I am convinced that Jesus is the Messiah of the Bible.
