Rejoice not over me, O my enemy;
when I fall, I shall rise;
when I sit in darkness,
the LORD will be a light to me. (Micah 7:8 ESV)
In this life we will endure many trials and tribulations. Most of the time they will be caused by events that God allows, and not because of sin. Even still, God promises to be with us through everything.
The verse for today is a reminder for us to take a stand when we are going through afflictions. In the darkness of every situation, God’s light will always shine on us as a beacon of hope.
"If the sun of God's countenance shine upon me, I may well be content to be wet with the rain of affliction." - Joseph Hall
