Minister Serita Acker
Sometimes we wonder, "Why?" Why all of the pain, disease, disappointment? Especially, when we try to live righteous. But, God never promised there would not be any problems or pain. He just promised that he would be with you. He promised that no matter what it is, he would work it for your good. (Romans 8:28).
How can sickness work out for our good? Well, he is a healer. How can death, work out for our good? Well, he is a Comforter.
The point is, if we never had issues, we would never know how God can deliver us out of all! Why do bad things happen to the believers? I sought God on this for wisdom. Is it ok to ask? Yes, it is fine to seek God for wisdom.
James 1:55 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
God why? John 16:33 33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
Why does it hurt so much? 2 Corinthians 4:8 8 [We are] troubled on every side, yet not distressed; [we are] perplexed, but not in despair; 2 Corinthians 4:9 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 2 Corinthians 4:10 10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. What do you have in mind for your children through all of this? Jeremiah 29:11 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Why? Simply put, it is God world. Psalms 24:1 1 The earth [is] the LORD'S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
What do we do when we feel like giving up? Galatians 6:9 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Who can you depend on? 1 Corinthians 2:9 9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
Why? Turn it into Wow...
