Psalm 55:16-18 (TLB)
16 But I will call upon the Lord to save me—and he will.
17 I will pray morning, noon, and night, pleading aloud with God; and he will hear and answer. 18 Though the tide of battle runs strongly against me, for so many are fighting me, yet he will rescue me
Isn’t it good to know that we serve a Deliverer? We might be afflicted today, but God is working to bring us out of this difficult situation.
It may not be in the way we think, but we have to trust that God has our best interest at heart.
An affliction is defined as the cause of persistent pain or distress. I know that afflictions can take on many forms — a sickness or hardship, a temptation, a coworker or family member. There are so many things that can come against us, but God promises in His Word that no weapon formed against us shall prosper!
I know right now, the country is going through a difficult period. Nigerians are in pain and families of the kidnapped school girls are afflicted.
These afflictions are only temporary. Let’s stand together in faith believing that God is on our side, and together with God, we are a majority! It doesn’t matter what our circumstances look like, let’s get up every morning and say, “This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. My Deliverer is coming!”
As we stand and trust the Lord, He will deliver us out of all our afflictions, and we will have cause to testify to his goodness.
