“The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles 18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.19A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.” Psalm 34:17-19
We live in a fallen world. The one thing our world guarantees is pain and affliction. Everyone will face heartache and trials throughout their lives. Although we will all face troubles, the Lord will
So in our trials do we call out to the Lord in a humble spirit for help and mercy or in our pride are we embittered against Him? The Lord does not promise that his children will not experience troubles, but he does promise to deliver them from them all. “In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” (2 Tim 3:12). Troubles and afflictions are part of this world. I know many of you are battling through trials this very day, but take heart, the Lord hears the cries of the righteous and he delivers them from all their troubles. Christian, listen to the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you” (John 14:1-2). We must wait on the deliverance of our Lord either in this life or in the life to come.
Friends, do not let your hearts be troubled, trust in God. Trust in the words of our Savior Jesus Christ. The Lord is faithful to his word. In the midst of trial take refuge in the Lord and his precious promises. He is Faithful and True (Rev 19:11).
