What to do when afflicted

​The Lord  is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all.

Psalms 34:18‭-‬19 NKJV

Is your heart broken? God is near you, you may feel or even say or ask where is God, can’t He see this? The Word says He is near you. Believe this words and say aloud and tell your soul every moment “The LORD is NEAR me”.
Is your heart crushed or shattered (ie contrite)? The Lord is saving you. Don’t say He has forgotten you but say ” The LORD SAVES me”.
Are you undergoing any affliction? The Lord hasn’t forgotten, He never sleeps nor slumbers. What should you do when afflicted?
          1. PRAY 

Whenever you are afflicted it seems so hard to pray but the Bible says PRAY. Gather strength my friend and call on the name of the Lord. 

         ” Is any among you AFFLICTED? let him PRAY. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.”

James 5:13 KJV

          2. Praise the Lord

Praising is acknowledging God for who He is. The Bible says let everything that has breath praise the Lord. This moment of affliction praise Him remember and thank Him for the victories of the past. Eg You were sick and He healed you acknowledge as a healer, He has given you breath, life,food, water, air. Praise the Lord and He will restore and resque you from the affliction. Praise and Pray like Paul and Silas. Midight means the darkest time of your life. Its darkest at midnight. 

          

          “But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.”

Acts 16:25‭-‬26 NKJV
