I celebrate and shout because you are kind. You saw all my suffering, and you cared for me (Psalm 31:7, CEV).

Reflection

This week’s I Love the Psalms theme is suffering.

Suffering is always difficult, but it is especially so when a person suffers alone. Today’s verse reminds us that God sees our suffering. He not only sees and hears our cries, He cares for us. It is God who nurses us back to a point of health, strength and vitality.

I celebrate and shout because you are kind. You saw all my suffering, and you cared for me (Psalm 31:7, CEV).

God’s child is cared for. You are not abandoned by Him during times of suffering. He is right there with you. He brings us through to the other side of suffering—to the place of celebration.

Response: LORD God, thank you for caring for me. It’s more than a promise; it’s a reality. You see how I have suffered and you will always bring me through. I put my trust in you, Lord Jesus. Amen.

Your Turn: Do you have a testimony of God’s care through a time of suffering?
