Why would a good and loving God allow us to go through such things?
- death of a child
- Financial hardships
There are seasons of our life where God has to put us under the microscope; leads us through the fire, begins to take us through some afflictions that we start asking questions of why?
So what are the reasoning’s behind all this?
2 Corinthians 4:17-18
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
What is Paul saying in those two verses?
That we all, even the just are going to face difficulties at times, those struggles/afflictions that you have, the pain of a lost loved one, the questions that you don’t understand now; we must walk by faith and not by what we see.
“that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose”
When we are being transformed from Glory to Glory
It’s in the “Toooo” that builds our faith, endurance, & character.
So how do you look at your current situation?
know that there is PURPOSE behind every affliction!
That God will not leave you!
Whenever we enter into His presence with praise, He enters our circumstance with power.
