Afflictions of the righteous

"Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all." Psalms 34.19
We all suffer afflictions. When the unjust suffers afflictions there is no one to deliver them. Unable to handle the pressure, some end up even killing themselves.
The righteous also suffer afflictions, but with the advantage that the Lord delivers them. For this reason, it pays to be correct, to walk in righteousness and maintain the character of God because, in spite of everything, the Lord is with all who obey Him.
