Have you suffered misfortune? Have you failed in any endeavor? Have you encountered difficulties of any sort? Afflicted with diseases? Does it seem you can’t do anything right? Do you have more questions than answers in your daily life? You are not alone! Isreal many time over have as beloved of God experienced same.
Whenever there is sin and disobedience to the Will of God, our loving Father in Heaven sends correction our ways. It may seem like a road block, a slippery slope, bondage and imprisonment, it could be a trip or a fall facedown. The consequences of sin is never palatable.
I am not proposing that every affliction is as a result of the sin of an individual or collective always. The wicked also sows tares while men slept! He will also curry for permission to stike as he did Job. However, the root cause of all suffering still remains sin- sin of the first man, the sins of the Father’s!
Friends, please be aware still, that God is a good God, He will RESTORE! He will be angry but for a short moment, it may cause grievous pain, yet His mercy will speak. God will not utterly deal with US the way we deserve but with outstretched hands will He gather US. He will gather US unto Himself with Love. All we need to do is ask for mercy! Repent today of your sins and let God’slove redeem you from a life of sin-waste.
God’s promises for you and I are thus: Jeremiah 33:2 Thus saith the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that formed it, to establish it; the LORD is his name; 3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. 4 For thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the houses of this city, and concerning the houses of the kings of Judah, which are thrown down by the mounts, and by the sword; 5 They come to fight with the Chaldeans, but it is to fill them with the dead bodies of men, whom I have slain in mine anger and in my fury, and for all whose wickedness I have hid my face from this city. 6 Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth. 7 And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first. 8 And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me.9 And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
