Live Life but think He’s unfair!!
That I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,
1 Peter 5:10
And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
When you believe in God but don’t think He’s fair.
Have you ever thought to yourself that “God is just not fair!”, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” and “When is enough, enough God?”
I have! Until I realized that He is allowing me to suffer a little while so that He can reveal His glory to me later. Until I realized that He is allowing me to suffer a little while so that I am ready to do His work when He calls. Until I realized that He is allowing me to suffer a little while so that I will stop depending on me and only depend on Him. Now, I’ve realized that life isn’t fair but God is generous, faithful, merciful and good. So I have decided to live like it!
Lord, I come to you knowing you hear me, knowing that you care about me and knowing that you only want the best for me. Please help me to stand firm and not waiver when life hurts. Lord, please be with my family and friends. I pray that they will turn to you when life get hard. Amen!
