The Word – Challenge

The Challenge question on The Word is:

The times God humbles you, do you think it’s a blessing, or a punishment?

Thank you for participating. God Bless you :)

  1. Great question. I’m reading the book of Job this morning haha. I don’t believe God is into punishment. I believe there are natural consequences for our choices, that we do have some divine destiny (part of which involves painful lessons) and that some things just happen but that God aka pure Love can use all things for good. I also don’t think ‘being good’ ears is protection from ‘bad’ things. In every life a little rain must fall which is why we should buy the shoes, eat dessert first and sleep in. ❤️

  2. During “the times of God,” it’s rough and definitely humbling. I have found that I have learned and grown the most during my most humbling moments. Therefore, these experiences have definitely been blessings, but to be honest, during the rough times, it doesn’t feel like blessings. Often, it isn’t until I get past the humbling moments when I can feel the blessings. Have a blessed day!

  3. I love the photo and I love these challenges because they make me think. :) At first, I thought it was a punishment, but now I know better and it’s always a blessing. God bless.

  4. Yes, it is good.

    Hebrews 12

    5. And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

    6. For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

    7. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

    8. But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

    9. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

    10. For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

    11. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
