>Especially for those Suffering

>

Televangelists and others beat people up by saying they are sick because of sin in their lives, or because of lack of faith. This may be the case, but the Spirit of God will make that clear to the afflicted one; they don’t need some dude in an expensive suit to tell them…

But just a reminder from the Word of God: (1 Peter 5.19) “Therefore let those who suffer according to God’s will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good.”

Suffering is part of living, with or without Christ. With Christ, He walks through it with us, and enables us to “consider it all joy.” With Christ, it all “works together for good.” With Christ we know suffering is temporary, and we look with great anticipation and hope to heaven.

And with Christ we don’t simply endure, but we continue “doing good” even as we suffer.

The extreme name-it-claim-it-blab-it-grab-it-your-best-life-now types have to clip 1 Peter 5.19 (and other verses) out of their Bibles. And they must, to be consistent, click their tongues and shake their heads at all the apostles (and Paul) who suffered and died because of their faith.

Don’t misread – God can, and does, still heal.

But one reason they are called miracles is because they don’t happen often!
