Suffering is a training tool that brings us more and more to a dependence on God.  It forces us to see what we are as the pressure forces us to either respond or react.  Pride shows up when we tend to strike back and/or whine about the situation. We have to remember that as members of the family of God, He sends us to the school of life to grow us up and bring us to maturity and the perfection of character He expects us to be.   We don't always know the plan and to demand an explanation does not indicate a learning or humble spirit. It is not that we cannot wonder, question, and ask, but it is the attitude that is the key.  The Scriptures remind us that we can come to the Father as our Father, and call Him 'Abba".  A pet name for a father,it is usually translated into the affectionate "daddy" or "poppa".  God is our "abba" and designs for us a training that will refine and bring the best out in us, if only we learn to ask with humility, learn His will, and follow His ways.  He will take our cares and will bring us to a planned and better end than we could ever design for ourselves. He is a loving Father Who will not stand by and let us become lazy, entitled, and worthless....therefore He teaches, trains, expects, and leads... He cares!			  Pastor's sermon notes can be accessed here https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qudo_l149RXcl_dYUGwT3tNVrnkkT4IC8sFjE29fkEQ/edit?usp=sharing    Copyright 2016  All Rights Reserved
