Worth repeating


We May Not Know the Reason For Suffering, But God is With Us 

Even if we seek to honor God in our lives,  the road may not  be easy. We may sometimes find ourselves in the “darkest valley” (Ps. 23:4). 

For example, in our workplaces, this could come as the loss of a contract, a teaching assignment that has gone bad, or feelings of isolation and meaninglessness.

 Or it could come as a longer-term struggle, such as a toxic office environment or inability to find a job. 

But Psalm 23 reminds us that God is near in all circumstances. His work on our behalf is not hypothetical, but tangible and real.

 God will take care of us even in a sometimes-hostile world, “in the presence of my enemies” (Ps. 23:5). 

While we would often rather not think about this, it is through the challenges of our lives that God works out his purposes in us.

From my YouBible devotions “if I’m suffering is God punishing me?”
