God's Promises are real.

Devotions for life.

Calming God’s promises
Psalm 34:19

There is a purpose why you are going through a time of pain and suffering even though you do not understand it at this moment in time.

2 Corthians 5:17
2 Corthians 5:17

No chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness

Hebrews 12:11.

Romans 7:14-25 New Living Translation (NLT)

Struggling with Sin

14 So the trouble is not with the law, for it is spiritual and good. The trouble is with me, for I am all too human, a slave to sin. 15 I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate. 16 But if I know that what I am doing is wrong, this shows that I agree that the law is good. 17 So I am not the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.

18 And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.[a] I want to do what is right, but I can’t. 19 I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway. 20 But if I do what I don’t want to do, I am not really the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.

21 I have discovered this principle of life—that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. 22 I love God’s law with all my heart. 23 But there is another power[b] within me that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. 24 Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? 25 Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin.

Give it time God promises to deliver you and He is always true to His Word. Affliction, when we accept it with patience and humility, can lead us to a deeper, fuller life. Pain as a way of leading us closer to God. Before I was afflicted I went astray, David wrote, but now I keep Your Word Psalm 119:67. And again, It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I may learn Your statutes (v.71). By His grace we will make it through our afflictions just trust Him and hold on to His healing hand. He will give you His peace in the midst of your difficulties

‘Joyful are people of integrity, who follow the instructions of the Lord . Joyful are those who obey his laws and search for him with all their hearts. They do not compromise with evil, and they walk only in his paths. You have charged us to keep your commandments carefully. Oh, that my actions would consistently reflect your decrees! Then I will not be ashamed when I compare my life with your commands. As I learn your righteous regulations, I will thank you by living as I should! I will obey your decrees. Please don’t give up on me!’ Psalms 119:1-8 https://my.bible.com/bible/116/PSA.119.1-8
