Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivers him out of them all.
– Psalm 34:19
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
This verse reminds me of Job, a perfect man in God’s eyes. He lost his property and his sons and daughters, and his body became covered in sore boils, but God was with him and didn’t allow Satan to harm his life. Though Job went through the trials and endured some suffering, he reaped the most valuable wealth of life. The trials gave him a deep understanding and sense of God’s concern for man, he heard Jehovah God speaking to him from within a whirlwind and beheld God in God’s words. However, although we can’t compare to Job, after reading this verse and Job’s experience, we also have, and truly feel that we are not exceptions, and not alone when facing sufferings, because God is with us and is our ever-present help. Maybe some people do not understand why there are sufferings in life. Actually, God wants to temper and purify us through those sufferings. Just as the says, “The prosperity of fools shall destroy them” (Proverbs 1:32). After experiencing sufferings and refinement, our willpower will be much more firm, and we will feel easy to adapt to the environment and not easily be defeated by failures or setbacks. It’s clear that God’s refinement of man is of great importance!
