The Christian walk is not a smooth, paved straightened path: but rather, a skinny, challenging path filled with obstacles, roots, and affliction. As we, often faint, weary, thirsty souls, travel on this narrow path; God uses these afflictions—or “roots” on the path—to mold us, change us, test and try us; to show us His statues and teach us His ways.

There is a reason for affliction, dear Christian.

Psalm 119:50 KJV
[50] This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.

Psalm 119:67 KJV
[67] Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.

Psalm 119:71 KJV
[71] It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.

Psalm 119:75 KJV
[75] I know, O Lord, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.

  1. Amen. I believe we should never call into question God’s love when we are subjected to painful afflictions and hard trials, but realize they are the result of HIS love, send with the purpose of blessing us in our Spiritual Man. To GOD be all the glory, Amen.
