God Is Never Wrong—A Wonderful Short Story

Posted on: 2 Comments

We have the “assurance” of salvation when we “trust” Jesus with our lives, that’s it.  Once we trust Jesus, He, our great Heavenly Physician, will perfectly heal and restore us, thus our assurance is in Jesus, not in ourselves or our future. Salvation is Now!!                                                                                                                             1  John 5:11-13,   1 John 3:2,   John 17:3

 

 

 

 

A king who  did not believe in the goodness of God, had a slave who, in all
circumstances, said: “My king, do not be discouraged, because  everything
God does is perfect, no mistakes!”

One day  they went hunting and along the way a wild animal attacked the
king.  His slave managed to kill the animal, but could not prevent his
majesty losing a finger.  Furious  and without showing his gratitude for
being saved, the nobleman said  “Is God good? If He was good, I would not
have been attacked and  lost my finger.”The slave  replied:  “My  king,
despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is  good, and he
knows “why” of all these things. What God does is  perfect. He is never
wrong!”

Outraged  by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his  slave.Later,
he  left for  another hunt and was captured by savages who made human
sacrifices.  In the  altar, ready to sacrifice the nobleman, the savages
found that the victim had not one of his fingers, so he was released.
According to  them, it was not so complete to be offered to the gods.

Upon his  return to the palace, he authorized the release of his slave that
he  received very affectionately.”My dear,  God was really good to me! I was
almost killed by the wild men, but  for lack of a single finger, I was let
go! But I have a question: if God is so good, why did He allow me to put you
in jail?”

“My King,  if I had gone with you in this hunt, I would have been sacrificed
for you, because I have no missing finger, therefore, remember everything
God does is perfect. He is never wrong.”

Often we  complain about life, and negative things that happen to us,
forgetting that nothing is random and that everything  has a  purpose.
Every  morning, offer your day to God ……. don’t be in a  rush.  Ask God
to  inspire your thoughts, guide your actions, and ease your feelings.  And
do not be afraid. God is never wrong!

You know  why this message is for you? I do not know, but God knows, because
He never makes mistakes …….The path  of God and his word is perfect,
without impurities. He is the way of  all those who trust in Him, as He says
in 2  Samuel 22:31.

What you  do with this message is up to you. May God put in your heart the desire to follow Jesus completely!

God is  never wrong!!    Psalms 94:18

God’s Sanctuary
by Max Lucado

The purpose of the church is to provide bread and swords!  To the spiritually hungry, the church offers bread–spiritual nourishment.  To the fugitive, the church offers swords–weapons of truth:

Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

Food and equipment.  The church exists to provide both.  Does it always succeed? No, not always. People-helping is never a tidy trade, because people who need help don’t lead tidy lives. Jesus calls the church to lean in the direction of compassion.

At the end of the day, the question is not how many laws were broken but rather, how many desperate were nourished and equipped?  God’s sanctuary—where He gives food to the hungry and tools to the soldiers.  May your church provide both for you.  And may you be a part of a church that does the same for others.
