Affliction is defined as the cause of persistent pain or distress. An affliction can be a sickness, hardship, or temptation. There are so many things that can come against us, but God promises in Isaiah 54:17, that no weapon formed against us shall prosper. You might feel afflicted today, but God is working to bring you out of that difficult situation. It may not be in the way you thought, but you have to trust that God has your best interest at heart. Remember, afflictions are only temporary. Stand in faith believing that God is on your side. It doesn’t matter what your circumstances look like, get up every morning and say, “This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it because I know that greater is God Who is in me.
