Should the righteous be afflicted?
Would God also destroy the righteous with the wicked?
At some point in time in our lives each of us will ask these questions.
It seems fair that troubles should follow the wicked while the righteous enjoys a stress free life.
But, as you know, life does not necessary follow this rule. Evidence of this is noted in the life of Job.
God considered Job to be a righteous man yet He allowed Satan to afflict Job for a season.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He guards all his bones; not one of them is broken. (Psalms 34: 19-20).
Afflictions will come upon the righteous and the unrighteous. But the difference is that the Lord will deliver the righteous out of all of them.
And similar to Job, the Lord will give the righteous double for their trouble and his latter days will be greater than the former.
Your deliverance is a surety!
Thank you Lord!

Beverley has been serving the Lord since she was a child. At an early age, she recognized that God had a special plan for her life, but it was not until in her adulthood that she surrendered her total life to God and accepted the mandate that God placed on her life. The Lord called her into His Kingdom to be an encourager, intercessor, teacher, scribe, priest, and to proclaim the Word of God.
Since then, Beverly has established a blog to teach us to become the oil and wine. The oil and wine are purified and mature products, which is the advanced level that the Lord expected of us.
In 2017, Beverley published her first book, Harm Not The Oil And Wine. In it, she described her trials and how God helped her to overcome them, and to live more victoriously. The book also exposed the enemy of our souls with detailed information about his past defeats and future extinction.
Wright spents most of her time studying the Bible to know the truth of God’s Word. She believes that only God’s truth can expose the deception of the enemy, and uproot and tear down spiritual strongholds.
You can learn more about Beverley’s life and testimony on her website becomingtheoilandwine.com.
You can also find her on Facebook and Google+ under the name of her blog, and on Twitter as @Theoilandwine.

Remember Paul and the thorn in the flesh. His deliverance was only guaranteed for heaven, not for this life.
