“Record my misery; list my tears on your scroll—are they not in your record? Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me.” Psalm 56:8-9
Whatever causes our tears, however deep the valleys, God does not forget. This is our confidence in the holy God. That He does not neglect or downplay our suffering -this is our comfort. It makes us powerful. When people turn against us they will run away when they realise we call out to the living God…
This is how we know God is our Father and total Saviour. As time goes by, the misery dissipates and the confidence and power grow. There is a way out of all trouble, and it is always the way of Christ.
We do not need to keep remembering our hurt and sorrows, for God keeps them as records of our victories and triumphs. One day He will turn them into medals of honour, that we will wear with Christ and His honours.
Christian, God is for you, no matter what you think or feel, and He bring you on and on to the eternal home.
