“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all.”
(Psalm 34:19, NKJV)
You may feel afflicted, overwhelmed or burdened by the issues of life. But know that God is working to bring you out of that difficult situation. It may not happen the way you thought, but you have to trust that God has your best interest at heart.
Afflictions can take on many forms—a sickness or hardship, a temptation, a difficult coworker or contentious family member. There are so many things that can come against us. Remember, those afflictions are only temporary. Stand in faith today believing that God is on your side. It doesn’t matter what your circumstances look like, why don’t you get up every morning and say, “This is the day that the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it!” You may not feel like rejoicing in the moment, but if you’ll look out with your eyes of faith, you’ll see your Deliverer is coming. As you stand and trust the Lord, He will empower you to overcome all of those afflictions, and you’ll see His hand of blessing in every area of your life.
Father, I believe you’re my Deliverer! I trust that You have a good plan for me and that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. Thank You for Your strength and peace in every area of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen
