So God has a plan. Do you think He would allow suffering in your life in order to position you in the middle of His plan?

I don't think He has a "plan" like most people think of it. I think life is His gift to us to invest or squander how we choose.

Jer 29:11 is pretty clear on the fact he has a plan and yes God allows suffering as a stupidity adjustment for human wandering.

I think God can use suffering, but I don't necessarily believe he causes it.

Sometimes the allowable suffering can change a person in such a way that He can us them, and in many ways that change enables that person to do things or think in ways that they were incapable of before.

Hey John. Good to hear from you. Oddly, I think of you often. As to the stupidity, yeah that can be a cause but certainly not the only catalyst for suffering.

God will both allow AND cause suffering, as He chooses, to accomplish His redemptive purposes. And yes, He has a plan, and the degree to which I must suffer in order to be guided into it is directly related to my willingness to listen & follow.

Rick. I agree with the thought, but not sure the amount of suffering necessarily has to be tied to my willingness to follow.

ALLOW! that's an interesting word. only in respect to allowing humanity to keep living after Adam & Eve's mistake, but as far as i personally, He knew i would experience the sin of others as a child and He made sure to be with me through it all as He guided me out of that whole curse destined to harm me for life.

So I see it as He makes a way In See More

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. I do believe that God allows suffering, but don’t believe that he causes it. We, unfortunately, cause it often ourselves by the bad choices we make in life.
