God’s delays and not always God’s denials, Part 2 (ep. 13)

The mystery of human suffering will not be solved completely in this life. 


Sometimes we suffer simply because we are human. Our bodies change as we grow older, and we are susceptible to the normal problems of life. The same body that can bring us pleasures can also bring us pains. The same family members and friends that delight us can also break our hearts.

Sometimes we suffer because we are foolish and disobedient to the Lord. Our own rebellion may afflict us, or the Lord may see fit to chasten us in His love (Heb. 12:3). King David suffered greatly because of his sin; the consequences were painful and so was the discipline of God (see 2 Sam. 12:1-22; Ps. 51). In His grace, God forgives our sins; but in His sovereignty, He must permit us to reap what we sow.

Sometimes suffering is a tool God uses for building godly character (Rom. 5:1-5). Certainly Paul was a man of rich Christian character because he permitted God to mold and make him in the painful experiences of his life.


God’s delays and not always God’s denials, Part 1 (ep. 12)

God permitted Satan to afflict Paul, just as He permitted Satan to afflict Job (see Job 1-2). While we do not fully understand the origin of evil in this universe, or all the purposes God had in mind when He permitted evil to come, we do know that God controls evil and can use it even for His own glory. Satan cannot work against a believer without the permission of God. Everything that the enemy did to Job and Paul was permitted by the will of God.

2 Corinthians 12:7 - 10 (NASB)

7Because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, for this reason, to keep me from exalting myself, there was given me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me—to keep me from exalting myself! 

8Concerning this I implored the Lord three times that it might leave me. 

9And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 

10Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

How to fall in love with the Lord’s Word (ep. 11)

Today we breakdown passages that teach us how to love the Lord and cherish His Word.


Hosea 4:6 (NASB)

6    My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

    Because you have rejected knowledge,

    I also will reject you from being My priest.

    Since you have forgotten the law of your God,

    I also will forget your children.


Ephesians 6:14 - 17 (NASB)

14Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 

15and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 

16in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 

17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.


Is Our Soul Being Held Hostage By Busyness (ep.10)

Today we talk about the joy of knowing and living the Word of God.

2 Peter 1:3 (NASB)

3seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 



2 Peter 1:5 - 8 (NASB)

5Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, 

6and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, 

7and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. 

8For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

How The Word Of God Works In Us (ep.9)

Today we discuss how the Word works in the lives of believers. We point examples of effective living through the daily study and application of God’s Word.

Colossians 1:9 - 12 (NASB)

9For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, 

10so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; 

11strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously 

12giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.


Ephesians 4:15 - 16 (NASB)

15but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, 

16from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.
