A man ran into the drug store and asked the druggist
if he had a quick cure for the hiccoughs.
Without warning, the druggist slapped him in the face.
Shocked and angry the man demanded an explanation.
The druggist said, "Well, you don't have the hiccoughs
now do you?"
The man said, "No. But my wife out in the car does!"
32 But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion
according to the multitude of his mercies.
33 For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children
LIGHT from the WORD.
Remember, God knows EVERYTHING that's happening!
Nothing escapes His all-seeing eye.
Nothing comes as a surprise to Him.
Nothing is done without Him having known it beforehand.
Sometimes life gives us trials and grief because of OUR sin.
And, sometimes the trials and grief come because of OTHERíS sin.
But God KNOWS beforehand, and accompanies them with
compassion and grace.
Just as pain is not the end result sought by a parent spanking
a child, God's intention is not the pain.
His grace is ordained to accompany the difficulties before
they are imposed.
Though incomprehensible in our finite minds, God's eternal
purpose is to help us grow in faith.
Like a master accordion player, our Lord, adjusts the length
and strength of each trial with kindness in order to obtain the
appropriate note from our lips!
When you are facing a difficult time, don't let it put a
"hiccough" in your faith!
rely upon His compassion and
praise Him IN the trial!!
