When we suffer, we are to return to its Source, asking Him for comfort and aid.
The LORD became like an enemy! (v.1-10)
The LORD intended our suffering. (v.11-17)
The LORD teaches us to cry out to Him! (v. 18-22)
Why does God not stop all of our hurting right away?
What is the undergirding principle for pain? Galatians 6:7
What is encouraging about our suffering? Hebrews 12:6
Of what else is God the source? 2 Cor. 1:3-9
Live Courageously Daniel 6:1-23 The world isn't always content to leave Christians alone. If they can't persuade us to join them in what they're doing, they will try to keep us from practicing our faith.Why would this matter to the world? Our actions shine the light of Christ and expose their darkness. When Daniel faced a similar experience, he wasn't intimidated Knowing the
consequences of doing so, he continued to worship God and pray.
Corrupt government officials oppose and persecute the prophet Daniel. As a result, he is thrown into the lions' den. Daniel in the Lions' Den, is one of the most well-known stories in all the Bible. Although Daniel was at least 80 years old at the time of this event, he continued to serve faithfully during the reigns of Darius, who ruled over Babylon, and Cyrus, who ruled over the empire .If we truly trust the LORD, He will deliver us through the trials of life. No matter what opposition or persecution we may face, the LORD will give us the strength to overcome—all because we trust Him. The LORD's power will carry us through any and all trials.

We get an update on our pastor's medical condition. He's hanging in there.
Our pastor is gathering more information and so he reviews where we are. The hedge and the kiss of Satan are connected, but that means Judas is involved, therefore the sop and the cup are involved. And we get a scripture equation leading to Job 1:6 and Psalms 10:1. It's the question of evil. Why does God stand back and allow all this evil. Why is He hiding in times of trouble? If predestination is real then why would He remain hidden? Why would He hide from His initiative? God is not hiding from Satan. Christ is not hiding from Satan. God hides for a reason... and it's not predestination. Satan accuses God of predestination by claiming God put a hedge around job. But there is no predestination because we are not machines.
Gary asks a good question that should interest us. And we're back to "Whenever there's time and motion there is free will." The first Adam renames the animals and the Last Adam will give all of us a white stone and new names... to Those who Overcome. What have we learned here? What did they Overcome? How do people Overcome if they were predestined. What are we to Overcome? The lies of Satan... and the lies these churches today have chosen to believe. And they hold on to predestination... and they do so willingly, lol.
Jeremiah 19:4-5 tells us that we are not predestined. Because if we are predestined this passage cannot be true. He did not predestine this evil, so how much evil do you have to remove from your doctrine if you believe God causes evil? And you have to deal with 1 John 1:3-5.
The sermon's almost done but there's a lot more to discuss. Thanks for listening.
