THE OTHER SIDE OF CALVARY

10 Dec

A PROBLEM FREE LIFE IS ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE CEMETERY. THE PSALMIST (34:19) SAYS,’MANY ARE THE AFFLICTIONS OF THE RIGHTEOUS, BUT THE LORD DELIVERS HIM OUT OF THEM ALL’. ON ANOTHER CHAPTER THE PSALMIST (119:71) ALSO SAYS, ‘IT WAS GOOD THAT I WAS AFFLICTED’. MANY TIMES WE ASSOCIATE AFFLICTIONS WITH SIN BUT THE STORY OF JOB IS THERE TO DEMYSTIFY THIS THINKING AND ON THE OTHER HAND SHOW THAT BELIEVERS CAN UNDERGO INNOCENT SUFFERING. JOB’S SUFFERING WAS AS A RESULT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. IN THE PROCESS HE LOST HIS CHILDREN, HIS WEALTH, HIS HEALTH AND HIS DIGNITY. BUT HE CONFESSES THAT WHEN HE HAS TRIED ME I SHALL COME FORTH AS PURE AS GOLD. COULD IT BE THAT ALL THE AFFLICTIONS YOU ARE GOING THROUGH ARE FOR YOUR PURIFICATION? MAY YOU COME OUT OF THE SEASON OF AFFLICTIONS, BETTER RATHER THAN BITTER. REMEMBER THAT BEHIND EVERY AFFLICTION IS PURPOSE. THE LARGER THE AFFLICTION, THE LARGER THE PURPOSE. THEREFORE AFFLICTIONS ARE GOOD FOR YOU.
