The Gift of Suffering

It is a question that has been asked by every generation of man since the dawn of time: Why is there suffering in the world, especially the good people of great faith in God, who many times must endure greater difficulties and deeper pain than some people who are blatantly evil? There never seems to be one concise answer, yet there are satisfactory answers found within each act of faith in every circumstance. For it is by accepting, in faith, God's sovereign will as the best of all possible scenarios, in every situation that we find; comfort, peace and purpose, resulting in an even greater faith.

 

Is a tangible means of explaining God's rationale, necessary to accept His will? Are not the benefits of trusting our creator, of acknowledging and accepting the fact that God's wisdom dwarfs the greatest minds of men enough? The benefits of embracing His glorious, divine wisdom, of believing in His great love for us, while walking in obedience to His directives, inherently outweigh any and all suffering.

 

A peace that goes beyond all earthly comprehension cannot be found in peaceful circumstances, for that would be understandable. That sense of peace would be natural. It is only through the miraculous imparting of peace in a bad situation that we can truly come to know the power that God is willing to release into our lives, as He transforms us after the perfect paradigm of His Son. It is also through these wonderfully horrendous seeming circumstances that we learn what it is to fully trust, to "Let go and let God" work. There is no more lucid understanding than that of retrospect, so until we trust at a much deeper level, through greater hardships we will never fully comprehend the power that is available to us.

 

"Love Grows"

Upon the altar I placed my heart

When all my love To God I gave

For this one life Relieved of strife

He paid the price to save

Then came the trials

Where many miles

Were wrought with hardships sore

I knew the pain For strength to gain

And loved Him even more

I found that faith required trust

With inner eyes to see

The spirit realm where fights the just

My flesh the enemy

Each day love grew

To Him I flew

His arms would comfort me

When in the dark

The night so stark

From fear I could be free

Soon the day shall come at last

The mighty trumpet of God shall blast

And what He has begun

Images of the Son

Created in you and me

Shall be perfected gloriously

I seek to know How far to go

Till love consumes my being

No more to roam When I’ll be home

My king I will be seeing



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
