He is afflicted in our afflictions.

Posted by appolus on May 14, 2017

In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.(Isa 63:9)

Think about that brothers and sisters. In all of their afflictions He was afflicted. Don’t let anyone tell you the Lord does not feel the pain of His people. It is for this very reason that He sent His Son, His great love for His people. He carries us on angels wings, He carries us in everything. He carries us when we are low, He carries us when there seems to be nowhere to go. In all of our afflictions He saves us, He redeems us and he bares us up lest we dash ourselves on the rocks of life and circumstances.

But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.(Isa 63:10)

Brothers and sisters, this is a scary verse that follows verse 9. Can you say that you are not in rebellion against Him? Have you checked your spirit lest you have been deceived by your heart? Is it possible that you have vexed the Spirit of God? What is the way back if you find yourself in that situation today?

For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: (Psa 51:3-4)Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit ;For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

Let all rebellion fall away, let us not vex the Holy Spirit of God. Let us move in humility and a contrite heart and remember that in our afflictions he is afflicted. Parents know well the pain of watching an adult child go down a wrong path. It is a unique agony. God the Father knows well the pain of His people, He sees their afflictions and it causes Him pain. Yet, He rejoices at the return of His child to Him, remember the reaction of the Prodigal Father. Run back to Him this day if you have wandered away. Trust Him today if you are afflicted, He knows and He is with you.
