An evil person suffers much pain, but the Lord’s faithfulness overwhelms the one who trusts in him. (Psalms 32:10 NET)
Light is sown for the [uncompromisingly] righteous and strewn along their pathway, and joy for the upright in heart [the irrepressible joy which comes from consciousness of His favor and protection]. (Psalms 91:11 AMP)
Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. Do not stifle the Holy Spirit. (I Thessalonians 5:16-19 NLT)
Suffering and trouble are a given in life. To a believer of the life and love of Jesus Christ, troubles can open the door for increased joy and hope as continuous prayers are said with an attitude of thanksgiving – trusting the overwhelming faithfulness and protection our Lord. The reign of trouble dissipates as we release our fear and open our hearts with thanksgiving to the power and presence of His Spirit within us.
Thank you Father for hearing the petitions of my heart and strengthening me as I experience the brokenness of this world. You transform the broken to beauty, giving the hope of everlasting love, transferring your Spirit into my inner being, transforming my life by the name of your son Jesus Christ, AMEN
