Many are the Afflictions
Are you praising God this day is over? Or asking why this day had to be the way it was? Many times we are faced with circumstances and situations in a day that we wonder what has happened to us. Had you known beforehand you might have considered taking the day off!
How easy it is for us to forget that the Master is at work in our lives every day, and in all circumstances.
The Word of God says in Romans 8:28: “…all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
Yes, the day is now over, but rejoice. It’s the start of a new beginning in your life. Each day is a new day with God – new challenges to face, more things to learn, but most important of all you have the opportunity to see God move in your behalf, making you strong in Him every day.
Rest now in the hands of your Master. Lean into Him; press toward Him. Sleep tonight on the bosom of your Heavenly Father. For in Him there is total security. Even though you may not know what tomorrow holds, you have the blessed assurance that you know Who holds tomorrow. Remember, He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Yes, those trials may seem difficult, but if you just trust in Him, He will show us that there is nothing impossible with Him. He is not slack in His promises. He has never failed His children. He has never forsaken the righteous. Hold on to the promise that “many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord will deliver you out of them all!”
