Hope-filled Hardship

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Psalm 129:1-8

Psalm 129 speaks of great hardship and suffering being experienced by Israel ("'The plowers plowed upon my back; they made long their furrows'" (vs. 3)). Yet in the middle of affliction and adversity, we see the proclamation of God's righteousness paired with a hope-filled calling out to a sovereign, loving and faithful God.

More often than not, our earthly circumstances will bring us face to face with hardship and trials. And when we find ourselves "greatly afflicted" what a comfort to know that God is in control, He is always and forever good and faithful, and that we can confidently place our hope in Him.

How does looking back and remembering how God has provided and protected you in the past, help when you encounter hardship? Is it your practice to have candid conversations with God about your difficult circumstances? Why is this important? Tami

What a blessing to know that we can speak candidly to God about what's troubling us, and that He listens and responds!

Looking back is encouraging, as we can remember and see how God brought us THROUGH difficult situations--so helpful. If I would only and always trust Him for joyful resolution of what I am going through NOW--that would be the best.
