Sometimes in this life, we suffer. We have health issues, heartaches, and disappointments. Throw in a dash of troubles and trials and some days we just find ourselves questioning. Some questions here in this life just don't have answers. Why does God allow his children to suffer?
That is a million dollar question for sure. Yet, we only need to look to the oldest book in the Bible and read about poor Job. He suffered horribly. He lost it all and then he lost his health.
I have been battling a health issue and most likely I will for the rest of my days on this earth. When you don't feel well it makes all of the suffering in life a little more heavy to carry. We only need to look at God's Son to realize that God does allow his children to suffer at times.
The great news is that He never wastes any of our sufferings. Although Job may not have ever understood why....... He did learn that the character of God is merciful and loving and that He can be trusted.
We can trust our God too. Not because He always gives us the answers to life but just because He is God.
Job 23:11 My foot hath held his steps, his way I have kept, and not declined. Job kept God's ways and never turned away. What a lesson for us to follow.
