Both believers and unbelievers suffer, but the reasons and outcomes are very different.
Many of us have been hit with unexpected inconveniences and trials. For instance, hit with health problems, relationships have become toxic, and the work environment has been a nightmare.
Where is God?
Some people honestly think that God has to answer to them. Wrong! God is God doesn’t give an account to man. God has at times chosen to reveal His plans to His chosen few. But, for your edification, God is where He planned to be while we go through the CRISIS moment.
God is not all emotional because we are agitated with how things are going.
A word of encouragement for those who are experiencing some difficult times – God is nearer than you think. The truth is our faith awakens our ability to feel His presence and receive His provisions to overcome the CRISIS moment.
The real question is, where are we???
When we suffer - two things are happening.
Remember, whether you are a believer or not…the believer is in the hands of God, being molded in the likeness of Jesus. Here’s where things get interesting. Believers who are obedient and exercise their faith in God are suffering because of their testimony.
Disobedient believers and unbelievers are suffering because they are being corrected for the errors made. The suffering is to lead them to repentance.
The Two processes are best described as:
Authentication of the Testimony
Justification of the need to Repent
This is a short Blog Post to encourage you to endure the CRISIS moment by understanding why it is unavoidable for the believer and unbeliever alike.
Let it be known that there is a special blessing for those (by reason of the sufferings) who Repent for seeking to blame and complain about how God has abandoned them.
Stay humble, brothers and sisters, don’t become weary of doing good. There is a great reward for overcoming this CRISIS moment. This is where the Patience, Obedience, and Faithfulness of the TRUE children of God will be revealed!
God is in the midst of the STORM to Validate all who belong to Him.
This CRISIS moment is unavoidable but necessary to deliver you and me from ourselves and further poisoning via Satan’s grasp on the World System.
