I was going through my WhatsApp messages, trying to clean up my phone.
I stumbled on a message I sent to my wife when for unexplainable reasons I was refused boarding on a flight.
The airline staff refused to allow me on the plane claiming that I didn’t have the needed documentation to fly. I showed him everything and he still refused.
It was a connecting flight so I had to spend the night in that city.
I listened to a preacher say that God doesn’t do bad things. According to Him, bad things are as a result of sin and the devil
This sounds like a good thought but it is just not Godly thinking. And don’t worry, I used to be on this side of the divide for a bit until I came to see all of God.
When I started seeing all of God, I came to understand that God does not excuse Himself from bad things.
“According to statistics, persecution is the daily reality of at least 100 million Christians around the world,” says Godfrey Yogarajah, executive director, World Evangelical Alliance, Religious Liberty Commission. “These Christians, who face routine harassment and difficulties, often suffer in silence and isolation”.
I think I am finding out every day that we (I included) don’t really know what it means to have God as our father. You see, if this is the way God is, then we have a dysfunctional dad in the family. I bet you know in your heart that God is not a dysfunctional dad and He is the standard by which all other dads should be measured.
