Reading along with us in Psalms? Here’s today’s reading:

Circumstances can be both a sign of correction as well as an opportunity for faith and perseverance. That is why discernment and a vital relationship with God is so important as we understand the finer points of His will and His direction. We need to lean on Him to tell us when we are right or wrong, rather than just assuming one or the other, especially when there is no clear direction from His word or circumstances turn sour.
