You, Struck Down but Not Destroyed


“For the eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the earth that He
may strongly support those whose heart is completely His.” -2 Chronicles 16

Are you going through a tough time right now? It’s bound to happen down here.

I remember the time when a driver behind me slammed into the back of my car. What a jolt! Both of our cars were instantly totaled. I was in ministry, and had only a week before a trip to Asia. This was really bad timing.

Have you ever noticed that people have a lot of advice for you in these moments? Sometimes it can be useful, but more often it’s annoying. The truth is, you need to hear from God.

So several days after my dramatic crash, I just HAD to hear from heaven. “Lord, it would be really nice if You would just speak to me.” Suddenly, I heard His still, small voice say, “I already have: In the world, you will have tribulation…”

I looked up the Greek word:

Tribulation: persecution, affliction, and distress. It can be used to describe a narrow place that hems you in.

Tribulation is especially about internal pressure that causes someone to feel confined or without options.

The good news is that Jesus already told us that, “Sometimes, you’re going to feel bad in this world, but take courage, for I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

I bless you now, especially if you’re in a place of constriction, affliction, or persecution. May you feel the light of His face on your face and the breath of His spirit breathing upon your spirit. May it be a CPR breath of power that revives your strength. And may you hear His still small voice.

Remember, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” (Psalm 34) Sometimes God’s deliverance in your life is Him witnessing to the world around you that YOU have a living, loving God. Release yourself into His arms.

In His Love and Mine,
