I have been thinking a lot about this one????? Why is there suffering in the world? If God is Good, why is there bad? and the list can go on and on, the short answer is God our creator is good and created everything good. (check out Romans 8.) Genesis chapter 1 versus 31 ” and God saw all that He made and said, it is very good” God made everything good, but Sin corrupted everything because of the fall of Adam, sin came in to a perfect world and we have been fighting its effect ever since.
Can I tell you something??? Life is not FAIR-But God is GOOD.
Jesus told us “In this world You will have trouble. But don’t fear! I have over come the world” John 16:33
OK somebody is thinking how does that help me? That’s a fair question, Let me ask you, What if the breakthrough in your life is just on the other side of what you are suffering right now? Sin is Bad and Bad is Bad and even though God didn’t make it Bad, he can use something that is BAD to change your life. Sometimes through the pain of suffering some good things can come out of it. James says “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4
I think the better question is not WHY? But WHAT? What am I lacking? What are you Teaching me through this experience? What are you working on? God, What do you want to do in me? You will never know how deep your faith in Christ is unless you go through suffering, because then and only then does God have the chance to touch your life in a divine and Holy moment, when your are in desperate need of a saviour, He has the opportunity to be that for you, when you have exhausted yourself he can fill you with HIS spirit and be YOUR HEALER, Making you better, making you complete and that’s the way I see it in My Market.
