The Perils of Pauline was a serial in movie theatres starting in the early 1900’s. Each episode was 40 or 60 minutes long and in each episode she was confronted by many dangers and imminent death. Fortunately, she managed to escape in each episode only to come back the next week and face another equally dangerous situation.
For many of use life comes fairly close to that of Pauline. We many not face danger, but we do find ourselves in situations which cause us to fear and worry. We manage to get ourselves out of that mess, only to find another one waiting. It can seem like an inescapable, never ending cycle.
Fortunately we have one who can not only save us from those situations, He can take our fears and worries away if we obey and put our trust in Him. Psalms 50:14-15 tells us, “Present to God a thank-offering! Repay your vows to the sovereign One! Pray to me when you are in trouble! I will deliver you, and you will honor me!” (NET)
