19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
As a faithful servant of God we often stand there in the storms of life clinging and hanging on as we peer into our own adversities trying to find some resemblance of our life. The winds of pain and turmoil try to threaten us and make us doubt what we already know. We grieve ,we shake,we cry ,we move ,and somehow ...Only by looking up ,can we see through it all and straight to the amazing love and unending grace of our loving Father. He's there unwavering in His strength and protection.. His whispers ride the wind to our deepest soul and inner thoughts and lovingly encourage us with His still small voice. His Holy Spirit comforts us, settles our minds, and calms our fears with His supernatural ability to speak to those who desire to hear from Him. the ones that diligently seek His messages with the whole of their being will hear His voice.. It's there that we can surrender it all. Yes, All!! Our heartache , our pain, our grief, and our suffering are fleeting and pale in comparison to how much Jesus Himself suffered for us. What we endure through faith ,trust and confidence that the Lord can and will answer our prayers, will never be wasted. We will grow immensely in our walks with God as one more time we see how He always valiantly rescues us. We can safely unload and hand ownership of our calamity over to the only one who has the anecdote to our recovery and the keys to our restoration. He loves you!! He will deliver you!
Every last detail even those seemingly unimportant on a scale of significance matters to God. He cares about everything that is a concern to you and He will perfect all that worries and saddens you.
God has already long been preparing for this day, this space in time. He may be allowing these trials and tribulations to manifest in your life to not only draw himself closer to you but to also raise you up triumphantly out of the valley and to set you gently on the beautiful mountain top . God sees what's going on and He wants better for you, He will move mountains to save you and give you back all you've lost and the time you've wasted. When He restores ... It's beyond amazing, its pure brilliance. Let His love heal your heart and penetrate your being. Love heals all wounds.
When we are in that valley and the canyon walls seem so steep like there is absolutely no way out, you must remember that in God and with God ALL things are possible. He always brings us out better than we can ever imagine. He leaves us standing there in jaw dropping awe praising His name and expressing our abundant gratitude over what He delivered us from and additionally for what He restored to us as a result. We will come out better than we can ask or think. We cannot imagine the glorious riches He has stored up for those who's walk is upright. Praise Him where you are. Be thankful in the trials!!
Beauty for ashes !! The best is always yet to come. Search your heart and repent , ask God to give you clarity as you move toward the light and safety of His presence . If God is for you, who dare be against you.
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
He sees all, He fights for you! He battles it all on your behalf. He sees those trying to hurt you and vengeance is His. He will fight for you , you will not have to lift a finger in your own defense. God will not let you stumble and fall. He can and will put you back together, and take your brokenness and lovingly mend you back to perfection. Stay calm in the storm, your rescuer is coming . When you trust Him regardless of who tries to shake you loose from His grasp, He will just strengthen His grip and hold you even tighter and bless you mightily for your trusted awareness and for living expectantly during the this most temporary of trials.
For this reason, we will be triumphant through Him and we can whole heartedly count it all joy no matter what we are facing... To Him be the glory!!
Thank you sweet Father that you are right here with us now carrying us through the trial. We praise you in advance for our victories! No weapon formed against us will ever prosper in Jesus name!!!
