Our Only Hope

The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous and His ears are open to their cry…. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. – Psalm 34:15, 19

Two great truths emerge from this psalm. One is that righteousness does not prohibit adversity, trial, or suffering. In fact, it seems to guarantee it. The second is that God knows the plight of those who practice righteousness, because His eyes and ears are open to their cry. 

In consideration of these two promises, we should commit ourselves to: 

  • First, seek God’s righteousness, expecting adversity, crying out to Him for help when that adversity comes. 

  • Second, rest in our Savior’s omnipotence, standing in His righteousness (not our own) where our ultimate deliverance is assured. 

This is the foundation for all of God’s promises and it is also our only hope. 

Christian, remember the goodness of God in the frost of adversity. – Charles Spurgeon
