To the brink of definite and total belief, it’s been said most frequently that God has an awful sense of humour.
Unsurprisingly, it is hard to argue against such an assertion when you consider God in relation to our human condition through the eyes of our human logic and understanding.
If you were to try to reason out the sense in seemingly undeserved trials that He allows to happen to us – trials that we’d all be more than happy to do without – you’d find the whole matter nothing short of a fathomless abyss.
However, it is generally accepted that difficulties come to everyone of us, in different shades. Still, I think for many of us it isn’t just a matter of life not being a bed of roses; I believe that more than that, there is a purpose and a reason why God would permit trials in our lives.
And it is God’s will that we stand strong in the face of these varying challenges by no other way but by the way of faith. For it is only through faith – not logic or our emotions – that we can very well brace ourselves against all that may come to test us.
And I believe through that same faith, we have in the end, the shining hope of seeing God’s wisdom in everything that may have happened to us and those events yet to come.
For…We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, who have been called according to His purpose. [Romans 8:28]
