Take time to Consider …

 If you are a Loving Dad or Mum you will not relate well to this Scenario, in fact you will have righteous anger that anyone would not only allow but arrange  this injustice to happen to their own Child…

 Jan’s  Mum and Dad  were considering sending her to an Easter Camp, they read a few brochures from different Camps, which talked about the amenities and activities that were available,  they all sounded good but finally they settled on one that presented well and offered a lot of variety, it was a little more expensive than the rest but they felt it would be well worth it. They paid the deposit and made their own arrangements for an Island Holiday that they had always wanted.

 One night just prior to the Camp, friends who they hadn’t seen for some time warned them of the danger of the Camp they had chosen for Jan, they had only recently sent their Son to the same Camp, they explained about the strict disciplinary actions taken if any Child did not comply with the rules and the blatant disregard for the Children as people of worth.

 They said that their Son had come back broken in spirit and was even on the point of collapse, he felt he was worthless and he was also very disillusioned about God and unsure if He was indeed Loving or that He even really cared about him.

 After counselling things returned to normal but the experience has left their Son very confused and disheartened.

Jan’s Parents after thinking over what had been said by their friends, still decided to send Jan to the Camp they had chosen and were warned about, after all they were her Parents and had the final say, besides Jan may learn humility, respect and obedience, rules are rules after all and sometimes a little fear can be good can’t it. Hopefully they thought Jan may also learn something that would be useful and which they could use for their benefit later.. In the Grand Scheme of things if Jan suffers a bit now does it really matter.  

 What do you think about the Love these Parents had for their Daughter,  were they protecting her from harm ?

 Does God bring suffering on us ? or does He know that we will encounter trouble,  hardship and suffering and so seeks to protect His Children and strengthen us to withstand it.

 God gives us His guidelines and we will experience His discipline and chastising if we disobey them. He does this by allowing us our own free will, so we reap what we sow good and bad and if we choose evil it will be unpleasant but like the Prodigal son we will come to our senses if we are a Child of God’s  heart .

 We remember all the trouble Paul and the other Disciples encountered in sharing the Gospel and yet they remained strong, we also remember what God says Himself, and that is…that our suffering is not from His hand but from our own evil Nature, our wrong choices or others and a fallen world where Satan is in control , the Scriptures tells us that  

God can do no evil,  even to bring good out of it, they tell us to say He does is slander,  but God  does  bring good out of evil… there is a big difference.

 God is Love,  let’s always remember this and be thankful , He does not rejoice in evil, in other words He finds no good in evil or does He willingly  allow it 1Corinthians 13: 4 – 8  but He does tolerate it so none of His Children will perish … He is giving us time.  

 Take time to  Consider … ” Are you a more Loving Parent then our Heavenly Father?” would you deliberately hurt your Child  for your Glory ? did God send His Son to die a cruel, agonising and  brutal death or did we…God sent Jesus but we did not listen to Him, we killed Him instead,  our sins,  pieced His hands and feet,  we placed a crown of mockery and contempt on His head and a robe of ridicule around His shoulders and then we pieced His side with our accusations and insults blaming Him for our own sinful actions and their consequences,  justifying the wrong we did,  we then placed Him in a tomb and forgot Him and lived to please ourselves.

” But He rose and so will we in Him! “

 Jesus chose to rescue and save us, He knew this was the heart cry of His Father and our heart focus when we are Born again is the same, we long to do Heavenly Fathers will  which is to Love sacrificially regardless of the cost. 

 Lamentations 3: 33 For He doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

 Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

 Jeremiah 29 :11-12  For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

 Psalm 46:1-3 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

 Psalm 121:1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made Heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

 Proverbs 10:20-22 The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth. The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom. The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it.

 Hebrews 4:15-16 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

    I like your analogy of parent and child Anne . No one in their right mind deliberately puts their children into harm and danger . Of course God as our Father does not either , the harm we endure , is brought on by circumstances or by self , certainly not perpetuated by God. We suffer consequences of our choices and actions in life, or being thrust upon us. Thanks Anne

      Yes Love you are right, we have talked a lot about this with us both having very hurtful Childhoods and also much suffering and hardship later in our lives, some of which we caused ourselves.

      If I was to believe what others claim that God planed these things for us I would have to believe He was a Sadist not just an unloving Heavenly Father and yet sadly I believed what others taught me and shared it too, so I don’t condemn them, I like most of them was deceived, but there are also false Teachers so we need to test their spirit.

      Thank you Ron for helping me see the need to consider what is Truth, how could anyone believe God planned evil or willingly allowed it and we would have to be Masochists to be joyful about it but we can give thanks and have Joy that God got us through it and has healed us of the deep wounds, the scars are there but not the pain.

      Thanks Love – Anne

      Hi Dei, as God’s heart Children as well as His little ones we are never far from His sight and those who hurt us will be accountable but yes how valuable are the Children as they grow up, that is why when you do Posts about your Grandchildren, I feel so much Joy knowing you are Jesus arms Loving and protecting them, they are very blessed to have you and yes you also are greatly blessed, they are a precious gift.

      My health remains stable the Doctors can’t explain why my disability has not progressed and I can still walk, I take one day at a time and give thanks for it. But we are very frustrated by the hacking that continues, I couldn’t even download my Blog this morning and yes I have lost it a few times, believe me Dei, I do not find it easy to pray for this Hacker let alone Love Him or them but I ask Jesus to help me and also to continue to continue and we give thanks others are not impacted by our hacker.

      Thanks for visiting it’s great to see your wings!

      Christian Love Annie.
