Does that sound familiar? Can you identify?
WHY did GOD allow this?
quote:If HE wants us relying on HIM,
But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God…
then HE must be reliable, right?
quote:DO you hear what I hear?
He has delivered …
he will deliver us.
On him we have set our hope that
he will continue to deliver us, (all quotes from 2Cor 1:8-11 NIV)
past, present, and future DELIVERANCE
HE cared, HE cares, HE always will care
HE WAS there, HE IS there, HE always WILL BE there!
~From A Wife's Submission
It can be easy for us to "make agreements" with satan when we are suffering. We can think God has forgotten us, He is angry with us, or He just doesn't care. Don't do it! Don't give satan the satisfaction of the agreement. God is always with us, He does not punish the believer, and He always cares. Your attitude towards suffering should be thankfulness. God is drawing you closer to Him by reminding you to lean on Him during the time of suffering. God is in control of all things. He knows what you need. Trust Him.
