Oftentimes we wonder why we suffer, we seek answers. Perhaps it is the desire to regain some semblance of control over circumstance that remind us of our utter powerlessness in certain realities, or, maybe it is just our human longing to believe that everything happens for a reason: we believe that all the details of our lives should fit together like puzzle pieces revealing significance beyond anything we can see from our surface perspective.
For those of us who trust in the goodness and sovereignty of God, this compelling need to understand why certain events occur is no less stringent. Even as we cling to the promises of diving truth, we scrutinize our natural world for answers that require supernatural solution. Somehow we inherently believe that if we can understand the motivation and contextualization of our crisis, then we can contain it, reduce it, and eliminate it
Rarely do we glean the understanding or revelatory insight we crave in the midst of our suffering. From my own experience and the privilege of walking alongside others during their most painful losses, I have learned that grieving is not the time look for answers: it takes all your energy just to survive the turbulence of the loss. And truth be told, there is no philosophical or theological comprehension that can adequately articulate the pain radiating from one whose soul cries out in silent sorrow.
How is it that the righteous suffer? Throughout the history of humankind, we have wrestled with the “way” behind our losses. Across the pages of Bible, we see this question posed again and again. Even the psalmist contemplated why the wicked seem to prosper while the faithful suffer. Answering this question is crucial blows.
For you see, the pruning and punishment is intention. It is not figuring out how one suffers something different than someone else- it is looking at why they suffer. Both suffering look and feel almost the same. For Mary gazing up a Golgotha, she saw two men being crucified beside her son, screaming, bleeding and crying out in the delirious spasm of excruciating pain. Despite their resemblance, there was a crucial difference; two were punished, and one was being pruned (Job 13:13-16, Rom 8:28, Jn 15:2).
Beloveth, most people loved the thought of being gifted and having the ability to do something great, but we don’t smile so brightly when we are placed in the refining processes of life. But what happens to a seed if it is not planted?
We cannot rightfully ask our vinedresser to skip out on the development of our lives simply because we are uncomfortable with being alone in dark places. To keep a seed from being planted is to condemn that seed to never realize its full potential. It is a fact that seed are meant to be covered to die.
No matter who we are, where we are in life, or where we have come from, we must begin to appreciate the ugly stages of our inception. When we allow the Lord to shift our mindset, we begin to see that everything that has ever happen to us has happened for a reason. If we look back at the sprout that pushed itself through the ceiling of dirt above it, we discover reasons behind our adversity that were preciously invisible and imaginable but now are suddenly apparent and miraculous when we arrive at the fruit-bearing stage.
Beloved you could not produce fruit without frustration. God could not ferment your fruit without frustration. God could not ferment my fruit into His wine for maximum potency without your willingness to relinquish it to His winepress.
Though you may like the process, your faith has grown deeper as you discover this new perspective as I accept that God never intended to lead me to a dead place and leave me there. The seeming death through which He escorted me was merely the precipice of a new beginning, and new beginning is what the planting and death of each seed is all about. Through those stages, I arrived at the truth: God wasn’t burying you – He was planting you!
Those areas and times in which the death of a dream, assignment, or vision seems to stalk your every move are nothing more than entrances into the next realm of your life, do not run from them; embrace them. The proverbial death of what you are trying to keep alive will enrich the growth and lives of others
Instead of condemning you to graveyard, which is what you may feel, God is planting you in richer soil for greater fruit (Jn 12:24).
Beloveth come along for more:
“The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me.” Psalm 138:8
Most manifestly the confidence which the Psalmist here expressed was a divine confidence. He did not say, “I have grace enough to perfect that which concerneth me—my faith is so steady that it will not stagger—my love is so warm that it will never grow cold—my resolution is so firm that nothing can move it; no, his dependence was on the Lord alone.
If we indulge in any confidence which is not grounded on the Rock of ages, our confidence is worse than a dream, it will fall upon us, and cover us with its ruins, to our sorrow and confusion. All that Nature spins time will unravel, to the eternal confusion of all who are clothed therein. The Psalmist was wise, he rested upon nothing short of the Lord’s work. I
t is the Lord who has begun the good work within us; it is He who has carried it on; and if he does not finish it, it never will be complete. If there be one stitch in the celestial garment of our righteousness which we are to insert ourselves, then we are lost; but this is our confidence, the Lord who began will perfect. He has done it all, must do it all, and will do it all.
Our confidence must not be in what we have done, nor in what we have resolved to do, but entirely in what the Lord will do. Unbelief insinuates—”You will never be able to stand. Look at the evil of your heart, you can never conquer sin; remember the sinful pleasures and temptations of the world that beset you, you will be certainly allured by them and led astray.”
Ah! yes, we should indeed perish if left to our own strength. If we had alone to navigate our frail vessels over so rough a sea, we might well give up the voyage in despair; but, thanks be to God, He will perfect that which concerneth us, and bring us to the desired haven.
We can never be too confident when we confide in Him alone, and never too much concerned to have such a trust.
Hold to this and you will never be disappointed – you can never be too confident when we confide in Him alone. Beloveth it pays to trust God and He will perfect all that concerneth you. He will not fail you and you will greatly rejoice and be glad that you did not give. Praise the Lord!
Remain bless in the Lord.
