"Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all." ESV
So many buckle in their faith when adversity comes their way. There are always questions as to why God would allow these bad things to happen. We live in enemy territory. We are in active battle with the enemy and there are going to be setbacks and problems. Jesus Christ is our commander and it is an honor to serve Him in this world. There is no need to complain about our afflictions and waver in our trust that the Lord will deliver us completely.
Heavenly Father, how thankful we are that You are our Commander in Chief in this army against the devil. Forgive us for complaining and losing faith and trust in You when things go wrong and we are suffering. We desire to focus on You and the perfect eternity that awaits us so that these earthly afflictions will seem as nothing. We pray in Jesus name, Amen.
