There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands; no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one. ROMANS 3:10-12

The ugly truth is that we actually do deserve suffering. We deserve to live forever in punishment for our sin, sins that often are so hard to shake. We don't worship God as we were created to do. For our rebellion against God, He would be just in leaving us to the horror that Satan has devised for us.

Does that mean that we deserve the tragedies that befall us because of something we have done? Does a country in crisis deserve those crises because of specific sins? These are hard questions, ones whose answers our finite minds can barely grasp. The world is broken because of sin and we suffer the consequences. Good things come from God and destruction is never His goal for us. He allows suffering so that we may believe in Him and that His glory in healing and reparations might be displayed.

Jesus has delayed His return not so that more should suffer, but so that more who are born to suffering may be born again to life with Him. In that delay, trust Him in all circumstances and be ready when He comes again.

INSIGHT: WE DON'T DESERVE ANYTHING GOOD, YET GOD HAS CHOSEN GOOD FOR US IN OUR SALVATION AND IN THE BLESSINGS HE BESTOWS IN THIS LIFE.

Dear Father in Heaven, This devotion is "a tough pill to swallow" yet it is the truth of your Holy Word. My pride gets in the way of admitting to myself and to You what a sinner I really am. If it wasn't for You seeking me first, I'd never have any desire to seek You... and I'd certainly never give You any glory whatsoever for anything good in my life. Please open my spiritual eyes to see "my sufferings" as Your way of drawing me closer to You. Please help me to seek You more...realizing that Jesus and His sacrifice on the cross for my sins is my only hope in a world that is in rebellion against You. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
