Run away?



Running away? How helpless and confused we must look to God when, confronted by the prospect of disappointment or pain, we run away. Afraid of the thing that might give us comfort, we react irrationally when confronted with the prospect of pain and affliction. We head in the other direction, not willing to discover what might have been a blessing?


Think about it. Oh that we might be so smart when confronted by affliction. When we see our afflictions as something to run away from, often we leave behind the one thing that can help us the most, the very thing that is causing the pain.


God’s Word tells us: Can anyone teach knowledge to God, since he judges even the highest? (Job 21:22).

After a while, if it hasn’t knocked us down yet, what would be the purpose of running from it. That might be the perfect time to pick it up and learn from it. We may be baffled by affliction, but if we trust that God is in control, there is never cause to run.


“I pray today in Jesus name for patience, endurance and circumspection that we might stop and discover that God gives us solutions to our afflictions that may be the very thing we are running from? Amen!”


“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
