Suffering

Posted: June 3, 2011 in Uncategorized

You know many things can be said about suffering ,how it’s not fair or this sucks or why me what did I do to deserve this? why don’t we take a closer look at what the bible says about suffering and look at the story of Job from the new king James bible. Before we get into the meat of things let me tell you what brought this on, my daughter tiger is 6 months old and went for her check up at the doctors everything was fine till dun dun dun the shots came and boy two stabs of the needle and she was crying and to her that is suffering i can’t say i blame her i am the same way don’t like shots.Some times we go through situations and we think it’s the end of the world the amount of suffering we are going through when really it’s the equivalent of the two little shots my daughter got today. Lets see what scripture has to say about suffering and look a bit into Job. Mathew19:14, But Jesus said ” suffer little children and forbid them not, to come unto me for such is the kingdom of heaven. Mark 8:31, and he began to teach them, that the son of man must suffer many things,and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes and be killed, and after three days rise again. NOTE:F.Y.I., it says in the bible Jesus was beaten beyond recognition. how are we most recognized? by our face and till this day when you see him he still bares the scares from that horrible day.( this was just a bit of information i thought i would throw in to this blog.) there are a few other scriptures on suffering. Now lets look at Job and see hat he went through and i will tell you about this book. Job was from uz and he was  perfect and upright, Job had a lot of animals and when the days of their feasting were over Job sanctified them and rose early in the morning and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all. Job had sons and 3 sisters., the day the sons of God came to present themselves satan came as well. the Lord asked whence comest thou? Satan replied going to and fro in the earth and from walking up and down in it. satan would again appear and God would ask the same question and get the same answer and God ask have you considered my servant Job  there is none like him in the earth a perfect and upright man ,One that feareth God and escheweth evil? satan basically hadGod take away the hedge of protection and allowed Satan to put forth his hand and  touched all that Job had and Satan thought Job would curse God to his face but he didn’t, many other situations would come unto Job and Job stayed a God fearing man and reaped a harvest like no other. We need to look at Job’s story and realize there is spiritual mean behind suffering and sometimes it is to teach us a lesson and other times its to use us later in a bigger plan. so what ever the suffering may be long term short term it matters not ,We should always keep our eyes on the prize if you will and that is eternal life on the streets of gold chillin with God our father, riding our harleys in pecking order with Jesus. until next time keep the rubber side down and may God bless.
