No matter how I have reacted to betrayal or any other kind of heartbreak, I am glad to know a way exists to be victorious.
Father, even the great apostle Paul did not want us to be uninformed about the hardships he suffered while in the province of Asia. He, too, was under great pressure, far beyond his ability to endure, so that he despaired even of life (2 Cor. 1:8).
Even many of Your mightiest servants have despaired of life. Like them, however, I must stand once again in Your strength and courage and allow You to pour Your life back into me.
Victorious Lord, how I thank You that the oppressor will come to an end, and destruction will cease. The aggressor will vanish from the land (Isa. 16:4).
