His Encouragement – Affliction and Assurance

Hello friends! Welcome to His Encouragement, a weekly dose of biblical encouragement to help get you through your week! Make sure you check out what my friends have to say too. Let’s all encourage each other!

Sometimes life can get overwhelming. Illnesses surround us, the weather frustrates us, working with the lost seems like more than we can handle, or it seems like living life just takes a toll. Our life is full of afflictions from time to time. Rest assured there is good news my friends – the One who created us knows our troubles and is ready to help.

Many [are] the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

Psalms 34:19

There are so many verses from Psalms that I could share with you to lift you up during your time of suffering. This one is one of my favorites. You see, there is one word here that really stands out to me.


The Lord promises to deliver us from ALL of our afflictions. He doesn’t say we will never have any. He says we will have many. Thankfully, He will help us through them. He will bring us to the other side. We should be praising and thanking Him as a result.

Friends, if there is something going on in your life, make sure you’re asking the One who can help you the most. Make sure you’re looking up. Take the time to talk to the Lord. He wants to hear from you. He wants to help you. All you have to do is ask.

What’s been on your heart this week friends? I hope you’ll share in the comments, and please don’t forget to visit my friends and see what they’re sharing this week!
