Psalm 34:19 says, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
I love that word, all. It’s encompassing and uncompromising. No exceptions. Everything and nothing less than. No buts, if, ands or maybes. No, at times. Never is not in there.
Although it comes with a guarantee, it is not without a key ingredient; TRUST. Proverbs 3:5-6 says; Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
So there are three things I’d like you to see and meditate on today:
You will have afflictions, but listen to the voice of the Lord, trust Him in everything, He will deliver you and direct your steps. Whatever you’re going through, God knows. He simply wants you to step into His presence and worship Him, trust Him even when it doesn’t make sense and don’t do a thing until you’ve heard from Him and received direction.
Father, I’m right in the middle of ‘this makes no sense’ and ‘nevertheless’. I will turn on my GPS and give you control. You can see up ahead when I cannot. You know the plans You have for me and I trust in You. There is nothing and no one who will ever come close to loving and caring for me as You do. I give You complete control of my life. ALL. For Your glory and honor and in the name of Your son Jesus, Amen.
