Read Psalm 125
Psalm 125 reveals the Christian's great source of assurance in troubled times - the LORD surrounds his people with his persevering grace, goodness and peace. We are apt, not just to lose heart and feel like giving up; but even more to reaching out our hand to iniquity because of the way evil oppresses our soul. But the Lord Jesus perseveres in his grace toward us, bringing forth good in our troubled times, and faithfully ensuring that the good work he has begun in our life will be completed. Jesus is our peace.
