"Oh that I might have my request, and that God would fulfill my hope, that it would please God to crush me, that he would let loose his hand and cut me off! This would be my comfort; I would even exult in pain unsparing, for I have not denied the words of the Holy One. What is my strength, that I should wait? And what is my end, that I should be patient? Is my strength the strength of stones, or is my flesh bronze? Have I any help in me, when resource is driven from me?" -Job 6:8-13 (ESV)
If you’ve ever been stung by something you know how much it hurts and how much a little thing can cause discomfort and aggravation for quite a while. But does that one little sting make you want to swear off that animal or worse- dedicated your life to extinguishing it from the planet so you or no one else will get hurt from it again? No, because that sounds ridiculous. It would be a huge waste of time, energy, and life. .
Yet, there are some people who do this with God. They get hurt a few times and swear off God forever and seek to lure others into doing the same thing. They fail to see the bigger picture. They fail to see God’s bigger and better plan. They’re so stuck in their own misery they can’t see past the darkened veil over there eyes.
Pain is a part of life. It makes us stronger in one way or another. It sucks for while but we can learn to move on and teach others how to deal with it in their life.
