Deliverance in Trials
“The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.” Psalm 34:19 (NIV)
The believer in Christ Jesus is not promised a life without trials, just the deliverance from trials. Deliverance will come, but don’t be discouraged when it seems yet far off, because we will spend much more time in eternity than we are putting up with in the trials on earth. Sometimes deliverance comes quickly and sometimes it comes in the resurrection, but either way it will come.
Regardless of the trial that is pressing against us, we can have hope as we hold onto Jesus through faith and prayer. Trials will not go with us to Heaven, but the character we strengthen through them will.
Let’s pray today that we may always hold on to hope in every trial of life, knowing deliverance will come.
