No one enjoys being the receiver of unnecessary suffering. No one enjoys having to take a detour when the driving is going well. But you know what? Sometimes in life, things will happen. And when it does; you find yourself facing a brick wall and all you can say is; this shouldn’t be happening; why? How? And to your credit, you are right; it shouldn’t be.
But what does reality say? Reality tells you that it did. You need this event in your life, like you need a nail in your toe. But that is how uncertainty works, it comes when we don’t expect it. Luke 12:16-20:39-40
Even the children of God, aren’t safe from uncertainties. 2 Tim 4:20. For the Lord doesn’t protect us from everything, because if He did, we would be living in heaven.
We are on earth, we haven’t achieved our eternal reward yet, so get ready, something is going to happen, and it will set us back. Rom 15:22. 1 Thess 2:18. Rom 1:13.
But the main things we need to keep in mind is.
Have you ever heard of the phrase, “the comeback kid?” That is an inspirational story, because the kid fell down on his luck and was set back. But after much determination and hard work he was able to dig himself up out of the pit and established this everlasting phrase that we all understand today. The “the comeback kid”. Everyone loves a good comeback story and by coming back, we show the world, that a good person cannot be kept down. We show the power of the human spirit. So, allow God to work perseverance in your life, which will light the way for others.
