His right hand will save us
Psalm 138:7 (ESV)
“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me.”
There are times when we feel like we just can’t take it anymore. We’re fed up with the troubles of life and the pain and suffering it causes. To be honest, there will be times when we want to give up. However, the strength of the Lord is enough to save us from our struggles and put us back on the right path to righteousness.
God has more than enough power to revive us, even in the presence of strife. God gives life to those who need it. If we give thanks to God for His grace and kindness, we can take comfort in His everlasting love. Our Lord will never forsake us nor abandon us.
This verse is reminiscent of an earlier passage in Psalms where it says in chapter 23, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
The two passages are very similar. They both remind us that even when we’re going through dark times, God’s light is bright enough to save us. He restores us with His love. It’s nothing we can accomplish on our own. If we reach out to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in our tough times, He will help us persevere.
During times of afflictions, we can trust in God’s wisdom because He knows what’s best for us. It takes humility and respect to ask the Lord for help during times of crisis. He can cheer our spirit and preserve our life. Let’s walk in a way pleasing to Him, so that we may experience his goodness through the worst of life’s situations.
This week, pray about how you can ask for God’s favor in the midst of trouble. Remember that He can save you no matter what you’re struggling with.
