The fact that we can formulate words and speak, we should not take for granted. So much we take for granted and do not think to give thanks to God, but we would not live to see a new day if it was not for the goodness of God. God is Almighty and All Powerful, and nothing can take place if He does not allow it.
We know that God does not want to cause us grief and pain, but what the enemy means to harm us with, God will use it to make all things right again.
Who can speak and have it happen
if the Lord has not decreed it?
38 Is it not from the mouth of the Most High
that both calamities and good things come?
39 Why should the living complain
when punished for their sins? Lamentations 3:37-39
This may be hard for some to digest, but as we would discipline a child, at times we will be rebuked and discipline by God, because He loves us.
Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. Revelation 3:19
