11 – God’s Word and the End of Strength

What about when suffering is extended?

Suffering well and bearing up under afflictions doesn’t mean we cannot, or should not, pray for deliverance. It does mean that we don’t turn back from following Jesus. It means we recognize the good in it and submit to God’s judgments. We can and should pray for deliverance.

In the eleventh stanza of Psalm 119, the writer seems at the end of his strength and prays for deliverance. Even in extended suffering, the writer acknowledges he still has God’s word, hope in his word, and prayer.
