“The Reason Why Many Die in The Desert of their Afflictions”
As we end this series, I must address something very important; I guess you can take it as a warning. Many are dying in the desert of their afflictions! Many will never understand why they are going through what they are going through. Many will chose to live their lives feeling sorry about themselves. Many will never understand God’s love and the reasons why we suffer. Many will find pleasure in seeing themselves as victims and walking around like the world owes them something. Many are using suffering and the injustices that our ancestors suffer as an excuse to allow the selfishness of the flesh to take over their way of thinking. Suffering is not a ticket for you to be able to do, say and treat people according to how you “feel;” suffering, as you saw in this series, has three ultimate purposes:
To break us so that we can arrive at the end of self.
For God to be able to share His holiness with us.
To be able to see God as we enjoy a deeper intimacy with Him.
