Psalm 34:19 NLT
The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time.
There is a constant suffering in someones life. An affliction is a source of constant suffering.
It could be a number of things such as poverty, sickness, or anxiety. Many people who suffer
these afflictions believe that no one understands them, but they are mistaken, God does
understand. He is always here for us, to show us the way out of bad situations.
Many people ask the question of why God does not end suffering. God is able to do anything
you ask of Him. God does not bring the trouble to you, but at times He will give you an
affliction to experience or a time to walk through it, only for reasons that is olnly known to
God. I think it is because He uses these reasons to draw you nearer to Him, or to make you
stronger, or to have you become more stronger and secure in your faith. Trust God and He
will lead you out of your troubles. He is the light.
