One of the greatest difficulty with human beings is that they want to understand and explain everything they experience especially if those situations bring pain. We want to make sense of what does not make sense. Apparently truth be told, not everything we go through will make sense at that time. Hence we succumb to lamenting, complaining and murmuring only to say, “Sorry Lord” when things make sense later. It did not make sense to Joseph to see his brothers throwing him into the pit. It did not make sense to be sold to the Ishmaelites. It did not make sense for an innocent Joseph to be thrown into prison for a crime he did not commit. It did not make sense for Job to lose his children. It did not make sense for Job to lose his wealth. It did not make sense for Job to lose his wealth. It did not make sense for Job to lose his friends. It did not make sense for Job’s wife to tell Job to curse God and die. It did not make sense to see a young widow like Ruth to follow an old widow and mother-in-law to a foreign land. It did not make sense for Ruth to glean leftovers when she could have been better off in Moab. It did not make sense for fugitive David who was running away from Saul to spare Saul’s life when killing him would have been a more reasonable option. The list is endless. May I hasten to say that in whatever situation you are you are going through do not lose heart because IT WILL MAKE SENSE ONE DAY EITHER IN THIS LIFE OR THE LIFE HEREAFTER. What Joseph’s brothers meant for evil, God turned it for good and he ended up becoming the Prime Minister of Egypt as well as saving nations from a famine. God blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the first. Ruth became the great grandmother of the Davidic royal lineage including the Lion of Judah Jesus Christ. David after refusing to touch the anointed one of God, he ended up becoming King after King Saul. Somebody shout ITS MAKING SENSE NOW.
IT WILL MAKE SENSE ONE DAY
