This is a Psalm of David that I can relate to as far as pressing forward in the face of adversity. Some days it seems like you are punished for walking as a Christian and doing the right thing. I realized that if I am going to rein with Jesus I will have to suffer just like He did.
GOD dropped this in my spirit today: Keep going. There is no time for quitting. Be persistent! Testimonies will come, Breakthroughs will come. Bombard Heaven with your prayers.
I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
The Lord said, "My grace is sufficient for you , for my power is made perfect in weakness." 2 Cor. 12:9 NIV
For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David. 1 I said, “I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth while in the presence of the wicked.” 2 So I remained utterly silent, not even saying anything good. But my anguish increased; 3 my heart grew hot within me. While I meditated, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue: 4 “Show me, Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is. 5 You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Everyone is but a breath, even those who seem secure. 6 “Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom; in vain they rush about, heaping up wealth without knowing whose it will finally be. 7 “But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you. 8 Save me from all my transgressions; do not make me the scorn of fools. 9 I was silent; I would not open my mouth, for you are the one who has done this. 10 Remove your scourge from me; I am overcome by the blow of your hand. 11 When you rebuke and discipline anyone for their sin, you consume their wealth like a moth— surely everyone is but a breath. 12 “Hear my prayer, Lord, listen to my cry for help; do not be deaf to my weeping. I dwell with you as a foreigner, a stranger, as all my ancestors were. 13 Look away from me, that I may enjoy life again before I depart and am no more.” Psalms 39 NIV
