Often times, it takes great pressure or suffering, wherein our cries for help are so insufficient, that words can’t even describe. Even the deepest sorrows of the soul cannot find words of utterance.
But when the individual is fallen so low in their life, wherein their sorrows are no longer pretended, then God sees and hears the genuine difficulties that exist in the life.
Some people when they hit rock bottom, complain and criticize and blame.
Most people, who are normal people, will cry out to God for help, long before they hit rock bottom.
Among the many principles that we should learn, is that this world is not our permanent residence. We are mere travelers, strangers in this land we call earth. No one throughout all of human history, from Adam until now, and into the future, has had or ever will have, a permanent home in this world.
Our real home is heaven.
To attempt the establishment of a permanent home here is for the fool. Everything in this world is temporary at best. Investing in the temporary, while ignoring the permanent, is not very smart.
Bible doctrine is permanent. Bible doctrine builds up and constructs the essence of your life. Bible doctrine is eternal and remains with you forever and forever. Bible doctrine is the gold mine and infinite treasure that you should be pursuing with all of your heart and mind.
And yet most people, ignore the treasure, and pursue the dust and stubble of this world. How smart is that?
