Never Doubt This

“Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again” (Psalm 71:20).
I want to share with you today a selected writing on this verse from the great daily devotional book Streams in the Desert. Read carefully & prayerfully—
God makes you “see troubles.” Sometimes, as part of your education being carried out, you must “go down to the depths of the earth” (Psalm 63:9), travel subterranean passages, and lie buried among the dead. But not for even one moment is the bond of fellowship and oneness between God and you strained to the point of breaking. And, ultimately, from the depths, He “will restore (your) life again.”
Never doubt God! Never say that He has forsaken or forgotten you or think that He is unsympathetic to you. He “will restore (your) life again.” No matter how many twists and turns the road may have, there is always one smooth, straight portion. Even the longest day has a sunset, and the winter snow may stay quite some time, but it will finally melt.
Be steadfast, “because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:58). He will turn to you again and comfort you. And when He does, your heart that has forgotten how to sing will break forth in thankful and jubilant song, just like the psalmist who sang, “My tongue will sing of your righteousness” (Psalm 51:14).
And all God’s people said “Amen!”
