I 8767 ve been pondering how to reply to your comment. I know what you mean when you ask why God seems silent. A few years ago I watched helplessly as my son-in-law took his last breath. He died, leaving my daughter a widow. It wasn 8767 t fair.
When you read the book of Job, you see how to respond. Job lost everything, including his business, his servants, even his ten *censored*ren. About all he had left was his crabby wife who said to him, 8775 curse God and die 8776 (Job 7:9).
But Job didn 8767 t curse God. No, he said to his wife, 8775 Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity? 8776 (Job 7:65)
Job taught me something I have been trying to share with others: EVERYTHING IS A TEST! I am certain that Job knew that truth and was living in harmony with it because later on he said, 8775 But He knows the way that I take When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold. 8776 (Job 78:65)
He knows the way that you take, too. God has so much confidence in you right now!
When I was four years old, I had to have my tonsils taken out. There were complications in how my throat was healing, and my parents had to take me back to the hospital. I was scared. I remember being on this table with my mouth wide open while the doctor cleared out a some gross stuff from my throat. I was screaming and writhing in terror!
At one point, the doctor still had to put in a few stitches in order to close up the area he had cleared of blood clots. Simple tailoring for him, but I was freaking out in terror. The doctor paused and gently said to me, 8775 I just need to put in a few more stitches. It will hurt, but then it will be all over. But I can 8767 t do it while you are struggling and screaming. I need you to be still and stop twisting and screaming. Do you think you can do that? 8776
There was something about the calm sincerity of his voice that reassured me. What he was doing was hurting me, but it would help me once he was done. So I nodded yes.
So the doctor continued. He was right it hurt. But he kept reassuring me as he went along. And then he was done!
Perhaps the 8775 Great Physician 8776 is saying the same thing to you right now, through the things you have read here on my blog.
God loves you. He connects you with others who are also struggling. Together we can make it, if we keep encouraging one another as we hold fast to God.
Do you think you can do that?
Here is something you was born with Fear and it 8767 s the first weapon the devil has used against you. Think about it. How many times has fear stopped you from doing of this and that and it all started with your own mother who while you was still in her womb feared the pain of having you , Why because others who had already given birth had so much pain and they pasted thier fear on to your mother about how much pain it would bring. They put the fear in her and through her to give you a clue take a look at your past life , when you were born your parents started telling you to look out for this watch it you might get hurt. Fear the stranger fear the cars fear the food fear what you might drink or the gril friend or boy friend the hot water the sun the darkness you keep it going for yourself. The devil is your fear master the ruler of your world of uses it to take away your Joy. Your Love Peace and Joy. He uses it to destroy your joy in life. I believe the answer to suicide is get the fear out of the ones who are affected by it. Why do they do it out of fear of what they can 8767 t see in the future, being found out about something one might have done. They don 8767 t think they have a life a head , they can 8767 t do with out someone it all goes back to what they fear that kills their joy and with out it they take their life 8767 s. How bad is that. Real gives life and it 8767 s not their right to take it away. God 8767 s all about eternal life , the devil is all about eternal hell. I myself because of the pain I suffer had it in mind many of times in the past but I always thought what if what if I did where would I go to hell or heaven ? Think before you act. I see it this way , if I commit murder upon myself then I am sure going to were I don 8767 t want to be eternal devil will chalk up one more point for him. The devil loves every life that he can take away from God who he greatest weapon is his fear and it has lots of ammo and it is loaded with fear. Be like God who has no fear. Am I right or do you not know?The night the devil attacked me just days ago I did not fear him and by the name of the Lord I stood up and faced my enemies of fear the devil and his demons who have spread fear all over this world of fear we live in. All nations live in fear of each other and what they might be up rules this world and the master ruler is the master of fear he created it for his weapon against the whole world and you are apart of to the Book of no fear the Bible Gods Word to over come what you fear and replace it with Love Peace And Joy and get on with your do you have to lose ?
