King David was a mighty warrior and king, yet his psalms reveal a vulnerable inner world of tears, fears and insecure moments. The apostle Paul was used powerfully by God, but he too cried out to God for deliverance. Job was a man of faith and godliness, yet he suffered greatly and lamented bitterly. The godly are not exempt from hardship and suffering! Our trials sometimes serve to keep us humble before God and man. Sometimes they serve as God's discipline. And they can last longer than we expect.
In these times we need to keep our eyes on Jesus. At the right time, he will rescue us! And he will keep us from falling!
