An amazing thing has happened at times in history when God’s people have come under persecution or painful adversity. Rather than being entirely destroyed and diminished in strength, a faithful remnant endures--though captive, on the run, in hiding or underground--and becomes even stronger in faith, spiritual fervency and power (Daniel 1; Acts 4:1-31, 5:17-42, 7:59-8:8, 14:19-28). Surely, this has everything to do with faith in and devotion to the living God, His affirming presence and power at work in the lives of His faithful saints; aspiring strong men and great women of God in the image of Jesus Christ who was sent to suffer and die for us (Romans 5:6-8, 8:31-34)!
Alert readers of my March 2, 2014 blog, The Testing Of Our Faith under the category, Instruction found me susceptible as all other Christians not only to the sin of unbelief, but also offering fear driven prayer to God that seeks His ratification of my solutions over what His might be. I should have known better by now--no doubt one of the reasons the Lord allowed me to go through the painful consequences. My youth in Christ is filled with those kinds of prayers that were not all treated with severity in the failed aftermath. Our God is a Father with no equal; a perfect balance of patience, wisdom and mercy as well as firmness and severity as needed with His sons. All praises be to Him!
