Read Psalm 146:5.
I found this Psalm while navigating a rough patch. The words blessed and hope stood out to me as I wondered, “What is a blessing? Is it being healed or trusting God in the illness? Am I blessed either way?”
In earlier times, people knelt to receive blessings. When life is difficult, I should be in a kneeling position to receive whatever God has for me. In a bowed stance—fully surrendered to the Lord—I find hope. Hope that He sees, that He knows, and that He will do what is best … no matter how difficult the journey may be.
Lord, draw us to our knees. Remind us in our sufferings that You see, know, and are faithful to work things out for good. Amen.
