“Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers them out of them all.” Psalm 34:19
There is an enemy that is out to steal, kill, and destroy. He continues to try to separate us from God. Afflictions come to our lives and sometimes those afflictions aren’t a result of sins we have committed. We live in a corrupt world so there will be bad things that happen because we still live in this world. If we have given our lives to Christ we are not from this world but we live in it.
The Bible says that we will suffer for Christ’s sake (Philippians 1:29). As we suffer the afflictions, which are many, we have the assurance that the Lord will deliver us out of them all. God will not allow us to go through more than we can handle (1 Corinthians 10:13).
We have to remember that we have authority given by Jesus to overcome. We just have to live by faith that God will deliver us. Deliverance requires having faith and patience because we are to overcome (1 John 5:4). Walk from here on as a victor in Jesus!
