Have You Seen Many Troubles?

Psalm 71:20: “Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again.”

That verse brings comfort to know God will restore our lives again. Perhaps you have lost a job or a home because of the economy. God will restore your life again.

Maybe you’ve suffered physical or sexual abuse as a child. God will restore your life again.

Through death or divorce, you may have lost a spouse. God will restore your life again.

Stress or worry may have brought you health problems. God will restore your life again.

No matter what the trial is, God says he will restore our lives again. The second part of verse 20 says, “From the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.”

Through grief or trauma, we may have sunk into the depths of the earth emotionally.

Verse 21 says, “You will increase my honor and comfort me once again.” What a joy to read all these verses. God loves us.

Dear God, I’ve seen many bitter troubles in my life. Please help me. Amen.

Application: When will you trust God to restore your life again, increase your honor, and comfort you again?
