I need to preface this post with a little note. I have avoided using the word God or Jesus or even Bible. Why because often people who believe in those things often come off sounding hateful or Judgmental. I had hoped in my blogging to encourage a return to morale and ethical living Because of its love and rightness. All through a gentle and loving explanation of God and his precepts with out the need to mention God. Although it is unavoidable to talk about love with out mentioning the Author.
In a recent conversation about difficulties that continue to crop up in this persons life. These issues are similar regardless of the location or boss. This persons response was God hates me. I know the feeling. Yet I have learned it is Love , real love. not the kind we celebrate on Valentine’s day
God allows trials or difficulties to enter our lives so we can learn something. If I went in to the list of what it is we are going to learn it would side trake us from the subject of this post. In Proverbs 3:11-12 My son, do not despise the discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in. You see it is just like any loving parent it not our desire to hurt our kids or allow them to be hurt. however in some situations it is necessary.
With that said. Trials usually come in a time of 40 ( minits, hours, day, weeks years). The Israelites had 40 yrs of wandering the desert. I think it might have been a lot less time if they just would have learned their lesson. But once the Isrealites did what God said in the first place the rewards were great. In point of fact, just do it. The rewards are great.
In the spirit of Valentines Day I leave you with this from >John 13:34-35 NIV “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
