I would like to share with you Psalms 34:19 “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them all...”
I am sure you are wondering “How can one be a child of God, a righteous one and be afflicted ?”, isn’t it ? And yet the Bible says that the righteous may be afflicted and even often ! Being righteous does not mean that you will never be confronted to trials; or never go through difficult moments, unfortunate situations. The contrary is true!
There are countless examples in the Bible! Joseph was righteous and yet, he was sold by his brothers as a slave and falsely accused of adultery by Mrs. Potiphar. Job was righteous but he had a succession of misfortunes that made him go from being a rich man, father of many children, in good health to being a pauper, childless and sick. Like them, you may be facing difficult situations at the physical, emotional, material, financial or spiritual level.
Should the afflicted righteous remain in this situation? No! The Bible is clear: even though he is often afflicted by adversities, the Lord always delivers him!
Beloved, know that the story of your life is like a movie. A movie without intrigue and which lacks of suspense, is not a good movie. Maybe you are currently facing one of the most difficult adventures of your life. However, do not look at the magnitude of your situation. Do not ask yourself, as Mary did in Luke 1:34, “How can this be?”, referring to a pregnancy without knowing a man. The miraculous way by which God will get you out of this situation eludes you but do not worry. He is God!
How have you named your situation? Proclaim the greatness of the name of Jesus to your situation and know that it will bow to its knees before this name higher than any other (Philippians 2: 10)! The scriptwriter of all scriptwriters, who has a wonderful plan of peace for you and not of evil (Jeremiah 29:11); will make you triumph, you the hero / heroine of the movie. Keep the faith!
Yes, the Lord delivers the righteous from afflictions, not from time to time but always! There will be a turnaround that will make you cry, no longer out of sadness or pain but with joy! You will raise your head and laugh at the situation!
May God bless you Beloved
