Afflicted but Accepted

Psalm 22: 24

For He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither has He hidden His face from him; but when he cried to Him for help, He heard.

God never abandons His people but when one is going through a difficult time, it is easy to feel alone and isolated. No matter your situation right now, God is not offended by those problems that hinder you. He is offended by sin. But even if sin is the problem that afflicts you, there is none better to save you. Yahweh does not hide His face from you, but you may hide yours from Him.

Every society has groups of people who are less favored than others. God doesn’t see us that way. You don’t have to be popular to be popular with Him. You don’t have to be pretty for Him to think you dazzle. And, no matter how ugly your problems are, He sees them as the plight of humanity. He created forgiveness for every sin just as He created deliverance for every human problem.

No matter your challenges, no matter your disappointments, turn to Him today and ask for His help. He will always answer your cry for help. You are never alone. He is awaiting you so that He can be a very real and present help.
