Psalm 140:12-13 ESV – 12 I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and will execute justice for the needy. 13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks to your name; the upright shall dwell in your presence.
God’s timing. God’s justice. God’s purpose.
Psalm 18:30-31 ESV – 30 This God–his way is perfect; the word of the LORD proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him. 31 For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God?–
It’s easy to trust when life is easy; when there are no obstacles. But we are not promised an affliction-free life. We are promised that God is just, His purpose will stand, and that He is always with us.
Affliction strengthens our faith. Our faith increases as we trust God, and we trust God by needing to trust . . . Psalm 119:67-68, 71-72 ESV – 67 Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep your word. 68 You are good and do good; teach me your statutes. … 71 It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn your statutes. 72 The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces.
Thank You, Lord, for Your perfect timing. Thank You for knowing what I need, and for fulfilling Your purpose for me. Thank You for being a refuge in any and every storm.

I love that God and His word is the strength of my heart.
He is a shield for all who trust him
Trusting is hard! It takes a lot of practice.
It certainly does…
