    God said . . .

    If you never felt pain,
    Then how would you know that I'm a Healer?

    If you never went through difficulties,
    Then how would you know that I'm a Deliverer?

    If you never had a trial,
    Then how could you call yourself an overcomer?

    If you never felt sadness,
    Then how would you know that I'm a Comforter?

    If you never made a mistake,
    Then how would you know that I'm forgiving?

    If you knew all,
    Then how would you know that I will answer your questions?

    If you never were in trouble,
    Then how would you know that I will come to your rescue?

    If you never were broken,
    Then how would know that I can make you whole?

    If you never had a problem,
    Then how would you know that I can solve them?

    If you never had any suffering,
    Then how would you know what Jesus went through?

    If you never went through the fire,
    Then how would you become pure?

    If I gave you all things,
    Then how would you appreciate them?

    If I never corrected you,
    Then how would you know that I love you?

    If you had all power,
    Then how would you learn to depend on me?

    If your life was perfect,
    Then what would you need Me for?



    James 1:12 "Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him."

    Great piece, dnommo...I especially like the one that says:

    "If I never correct you, how will you know that I love you?"

    Yes!

    Such wisdom here. By our Father are we saved, for we being just men and women at fault, we need His mercy, always. And He has given us that by the sacrifice of His Son on the tree for our sins unto salvation, and by His resurrection from the dead. Only in faith and true belief can we know His redemption to His Holy Kingdom in His love forevermore.
