“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” Psalm 34:19 NKJV
No one said this walk would be easy, but we have the assurance (hope) that if we are in Christ, we have the Greater One on the inside of us. We have the assurance that no matter how much heart ache we face, God says, He “…is the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort; Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the same comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” (II Corinthians 1:3-4) KJV
God comforts us, so that we can comfort someone else. God brings us through, so that we can know His goodness for ourselves. God brings us out so we can tell others that God is able. God makes a way for us, so that we know that He is The Way. We have hope in Him.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. Aren’t you glad that you can depend on God’s Word to be true, because God says, “For I am the Lord, I do not change.” (Malachi 3:6a) NKJV
Aren’t you glad that, “…Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.”? (Psalm 30:5b)NKJV No one said it would be easy, but aren’t you glad that “Yet, in all these things we are more than conquerors, through Him that loved us.”?(Romans 8:37)NKJV
Aren’t you excited to know that, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper…”? (Isaiah 54:17) NKJV
Aren’t you thrilled to know that God says, “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” (Isaiah 43:10)KJV
Aren’t you glad, that God says, He will never leave nor forsake you?
Aren’t you glad, that you can depend on the Lord, because He is “…the same yesterday, today and forever.”
(Hebrews 13:8) KJV
No matter what you are facing, God is able and faithful to bring you through. If you trust Him, He will deliver you. “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31) NKJV
And aren’t you glad…
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28) NKJV
We thank God for the hope He gives us…Aren’t you glad?
