PostSubject: Deep Roots   Sat Nov 17, 2018 1:00 pm

“Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” Romans 5:3-5

A researcher from Rutgers University found that in times of drought, some tree roots probe hundreds of feet deep and even break through cracks in rocks searching for water. In a similar way, as we search deeper in the Bible in times of suffering and lack, our relationship with God grows.

John Piper observed this truth as a pastor. “I have never heard anyone say the really deep lessons of life have come in times of ease and comfort. But I have heard many saints say every significant advance made in grasping God’s love and growing deeper with him has come through suffering” (2012).

Very few of us could begin to compare our life’s afflictions with those of Martin Luther or of Charles Spurgeon, but listen to their words: “Whoever does not know God in suffering does not know God at all” (Luther, 1527); “I am certain that I never grew in grace one-half so much as I have on the bed of pain” (Spurgeon, 1871). Let these words, born out of great pain but staked on a great belief in a loving God, go deep into your heart today.

Scripture Focus: And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen. Peter 5:10-11
 
Insight: He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. Matthew 5:45 Just as all of us enjoy God's rich blessings, all of us experience troubles and suffering too. When this happens to you, let it remind you it's an opportunity to grow in Christ.

Reader's Prayer: Father, as we go through the drought of suffering, help our roots to grow deep in You and Your Word. In Jesus' Name, 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.
