Sunday Meditation – God’s Faithfulness in Our Suffering

“The more David was afflicted, the more God’s faithfulness appeared. The faithfulness of God is best experienced in our suffering because in them we are most prayerful. When our older brother Esau is upon us, we must wrestle with our elder brother Jesus and not let him go until he blesses us. In adversity we are early with God in prayer. In prosperity we pray and hardly take notice of the answers. But in affliction we can press God for the return of our prayers. God is never worse than his word. Affliction is a furnace to try the faith of God’s people and to see God’s faithfulness in his promises.”
