Read: Deuteronomy 32: 1-4
Can You Think of A Situation in Your Life: the Lord allows each of us to face some trails that we won't understand to our satisfaction this side of heaven. Our jobs is not to comprehend everything He does and permits in ours lives, but to know how to respond. He'll make all things right in eternity. In the meantime, trust the solid Rock when all else is shaky.
Their was many times in my life that I felt like an exceptation to the promises of Scripture? The Scriptures are filled with examples of godly people who faced hardships that seemed totally unfair. For example, Joseph was sold as a slave, David was hunted by King Saul, and Paul suffered with a "thorn in the flesh" (2 Cor.12:7-10). Moses declares that the Lord is faithful and all His ways are just, but we have all been in circumstances that seemed wrong and unfailr to us. And because God did not intervene, we've struggled to reconcile our experience with Moses' statement about Him, I know at one time I did myself.
Situations like these can cause us to question whether God is good and just. If left to fester in our minds, these doubts may give way to discouragement. Believe me I know because alot of times I feel like Paul with the thorn in my side that continuously tortment me. We can easily start thinking, What's the use of serving the Lord? Look at what it's gotten me-- suffering!
It's important to remember that what we know about God from His Word is more accurate than what we feel. Scripture tells us that God is good and just, so we can know with certainty that He has a fantastic purpose for us in whatever we experience.
To God Be The 'Glory'
