God does have a purpose for our suffering and until we accept that as fact in our hearts and souls, we will never know the Peace of God! In our most trying times and in our deepest sufferings we must recognize that God has permitted our trials and adversities for one reason... and that one reason is... His Marvelous Purpose!!
Still, we ask and we want to know what possible, marvelous purpose could there be in such miseries? Oh, my friend... take joy in what is being prepared and what lies ahead for you!!
Set your sights on an "unimaginable resting place," centered in the Holy Spirit!! A place of WELL-BEING and VICTORY for a hungering and hurting people.
Yes! There is a place of healing, peace and comfort that the church has neglected to bolster. A place where those who are anguishing, can take rest and find a soft cushion for their heartaches!
We have forgotten this hiding place... we have neglected the passion and tenderness given us... and we have lost touch with the "comforter" that Jesus promised would remain with us, until His return!
My friend, as we learn to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit, his presence will bring a sense of peace and joy. He alone can take our darkest night and turn it into a brilliant new day of light and hope!
Jesus told of this promise while He was still with us. He said, "The Holy Spirit, whom the Father would send at His request, would make it plain to us." The Holy Spirit would be a reminder.. a parting gift to us, of Our Lord's Peace!
Take heart, Jesus did not abandon us! Don't get upset, don't be agitated or anxious. Be calmed... be anchored... be blessed as you rest in the heart of God's promise... the Holy Spirit!!
There is peace to be found... in the midst of your turmoil!!
