Finding Joy in Tough Times I Daily Walk Devotion

Is your heart hurting right now? Are you struggling to get over a complicated issue? If so, you are not alone. The Bible gives a lot of wisdom and insight into how to process these circumstances. Finding joy in tough times can be a lifesaver. The principles here can help you work through the challenges you are facing.

‭‭PSALMS‬ ‭109:30

“With my mouth I will give thanks abundantly to the LORD; And in the midst of many I will praise Him.”

Give Me Justice

This Psalm is a prayer for vengeance against the writer’s enemies. He wants God to deliver him from his troubles and bring justice to those causing harm. At the end of the prayer, the author pens some vital principles when going through tough times. He will give thanks and praise to the Lord even when he is in the midst of many adversaries. It’s easy to focus on justice and judgment when someone is wronging you, but to find joy in tough times, it is better to focus on praising the Lord.

Broken World

It’s not a matter of if, but when someone is going to wrong you. Whether purposely or inadvertently, there will be several times when your feelings get hurt. It doesn’t matter if you are the nicest person or bend backward to help people. You will be wronged. It is a byproduct of the world in which we live. Everyone is a sinner full of selfishness; most will step over another to get what they want. It does no good to be on guard for this. Instead, you need to have your mind in the right place.

Finding Joy in Tough Times

Finding joy in tough times means that you need to roll with the punches, be full of grace, and have a heart full of praise. Most of the time, the pain from being wronged comes out of the blue and from someone close to you. That’s what makes it hurt so much. A lot of time can be wasted trying to figure out the motive. The sooner you can get back online with the right mind will allow you to move forward. Forgive the person and get your mind back on Jesus. Fill your heart with praise, even if surrounded by the enemy.
