ADDRESSING THIS LAMENT - 'WHY DID THIS HAPPEN TO ME?'

Dearly beloved, there's no need for you to lament thus "why did this happen to me?"

You have to recognise these things;

  1. Trials happen to people, and nobody has the ability to determine which trial befalls him.
  2. Irrespective of what trial befalls you, if it happened to you, GOD allowed it - though GOD did not send it to you, but HE allowed it because HE has equipped you with the victory over it, and it will work out HIS plan for your life. Let's see some Bible verses;

'There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.' - 1 Corinthians 10 vs 13 {KJV}

Let me show it to you in the Amplified Bible Translation;

'For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.'

You see...GOD doesn't send trial to man, but GOD decides which trial befalls the Believer. Nothing happens to GOD's child without GOD's approval. Let me highlight that line to you from the above Bible verse;

'...but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able...'

You see... The word "suffer" as used in that verse means "allow"; that's simply old English language style of communication. Okay, take note of the line "who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able". This shows us that it's GOD that allows the trials we face come to us. GOD does not send the trials, but HE decides which comes to us, based on our strength;

See it;

'...but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able...'

Take note of the words that ye are able - this speaks of ability/capacity/strength. Meaning, GOD decides which trial comes to HIS children, based on their different abilities/capacities and strengths. - Think about it

'And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.' - Romans 8 vs 28 {KJV}

ALL THINGS

So we see that every trial we face, irrespective of how traumatic they are, irrespective of how weighty they are, GOD uses them to work out good for us. Amazing! That means, the Believer in CHRIST can never be in a helpless situation; there's no hopelessness for the man who is in CHRIST. - Selah

So dearly beloved, don't be dismayed neither should you fall into hopelessness because of what you might be faced with presently. Receive these words today and have hope that GOD is working things out for your good. AMEN. GOD is with you, and you will rejoice by your deliverance which GOD will give to you by the Revelation of CHRIST. AMEN.

GOD's Grace is with your spirit.
