Can God do this?
That early morning, I had some few kilometers to cover. My course was tasking and research work was scaring also. As we drove from Lagos to abeokuta, right in the heart of the city, I saw people gathered that early morning, when the early down pour had subsided. There was an innocent baby, dumped by a mother and the whole of that downpour was on the innocent being. Various comments rent the air, “she must be a prostitute” “she is wicked” and all kinds of comments by the observers.
Is she a mother or a murderer was the question that hunted my thought through out that week? Then I now understand the reason why God did not stand trusting every body when He asked, “ can a sucking child be forgotten by his mother? It seems there were no answers, which implies “No” or” yes” but He said after consideration of “if” “I shall not” I do not and cannot justify the lady or woman who had limitation and there are some situations that may have tempted her to abandon the innocent child.
I have heard of cases of fathers who left home for several years and mother who abandoned their children. I have heard cases of pastor that left their churches and the children and followers were scattered
The role of parent is a great task and quite demanding, it requires a lot of sacrifice of time, money, resources and inconveniences.Like wise, it requires great deal of endurance and tolerance that not all men and women are prepared or trained to offer and such will diplomatically or other wise make themselves policies and principles of abandoning their children, a right. Parenting is the hardest job to do and requires lots of sacrifice.
Even if the parents do care, they are limited by situation, death may whisk them off the scene, and those kids are abandoned. Poverty and many other limiting situations may prevent these to give minimum attention to those children needs.Their shallow faith may be tempted to overlook these precious jewels.
But can God do this? Can he abandon his children for any reason on the dunghill, scorched or drenched by the heat of the sun or downpour of the rain, can God do that?
He won’t, I know He won’t? Apart from the love for us, which is unconditional, he has all the provision it takes to meet all my needs. For him to have permitted my living on earth, he must have had enough provision to meet all my needs. He did not love me because I have many things to offer him, infact such person like me do not have any of such to start with, yet He loved me. He has great resources to meet all needs
He cannot die! Every one of us has account with the Lord ;our resources and provisions for our lives are kept with Him and He is faithful about that. Just enough resources to fulfill our dreams in life.
I do not want to re- open wounds, if you’d suffered such, don’t mind, I had, and he was there for me that is why I can vow for this wonderful God. I know he cannot do this that is why I can hang myself in his hand even if He will fail, but he won’t, and I have not regretted this
I’ve done the hanging
He is still keeping and feeding me with Wonders. I have resolved to trust him till he fails, but this is impossible and my life cannot fault his word!
