The Beautiful Afflicted

“For the LORD takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation.” (Psalm 149:4)

God has plans for His people.  Satan will throw his fiery darts at us.  The world will mock us and try and relegate us to the bone-heap of history.  Society will call us bigots and homophobes and fools for our faith, and the adversary will pile mud and pain and trials upon us at every opportunity.

And yet, if you are Christ’s, you are beautiful.  He has adorned His people as His bride and your salvation has clothed you in white.  Resist the devil and he will flee from you.  The best is yet to come.

Matt 4:4 #Biblebites
