God’s Chief Design….!

Posted by Scott on July 26, 2008

“God’s chief design in killing our comforts is to kill our corruptions!  Sanctified afflictions are afflictions lovingly allowed into the lives of believers by our heavenly Father.  These are prescribed by the Great Physician of our souls for purifying our sinful nature.  God cares far more about our eternal heavenly well-being than He does our temporary earthly one.  For God knows:

o Poverty kills pride!

o Public reproach kills public ambitions!

o Needs kill greeds!

So, yield to the work God is trying to do in your current affliction.  God kills our comforts from no other design than to bless us.  Fall in, therefore, with the gracious design of God.  DOn’t fight it!  Instead, during every affliction, pray and ask God to follow it with His blessing. 

Happy is the man who understand, approves, and heartily concurs with the design of God in afflicting circumstances.”                                                -John Flavel
