So I was on facebook today and saw a quote on one of my facebook friend's statuses that I then copped and set as my status. The quote is this:
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He guards all of his bones; not one of them is broken.” (Psalm 34:19)
Not only does God fight for us, but He promises to DELIVER us from what ails us. We just have to be mindful that He will do it on HIS time, not OUR time, and DEFINITELY NOT Ed's (or any other affliction's) time, because if He did it on the schedule of the latter, it would never be accomplished, and if He did it on OUR time, it would never teach us patience (one of the hardest, but most rewarding, fruits of the Spirit, to embody).
So....to wrap up....instead of telling God, "God, I have this really big problem and I don't think I can beat it," we should say, "Problem, I have an insurmountably big GOD, and He will take care of you!!"
So take THAT, Ed!! MY GOD FIGHTS ON MY BEHALF, which means He will help me defeat YOU!!
