trust in the middle of tragedy

Jeremiah 39

The king seemed to be getting away by following his own idea, but the enemy chased him down and dealt with him just like the Lord had said. But to Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, the Lord promised that he would not be delivered to the people that he feared.

v18

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.

His life was saved because he put his trust in the Lord. He had shown his trust when he begged the king to save Jeremiah's life. Even when we're in the middle of a catastrophe, we should put our trust in the Lord and He'll deliver us.
