God Thinking LIII - Getting Beyond Your Self 6

"The reason why so many things seem like the aren’t going right is because of false teaching, i. e., (that Christians who are serving God faithfully are free from the results of the (fall of man).  It is not true.
At the same time, many of us have brought on to ourselves much despair.  Many problems are self-inflicted and there are consequences to bad choices that follow us for a time.
Some of you are still actively cultivating an experience that will turn out to cause unnecessary trouble and heartache.

For those things that you bring on to yourself, the only cure is to put an end to the vicious cycle by confessing the problem/sin/indiscretion and repenting of it, (turning your back on the problem, instead of turning your back on the people that are trying to help you out of your problem.)
But, many problems and troubles come your way, unsolicited and not due to any action or inaction on your part.  The fact that each and every person has free will, puts us all at risk for unexpected events in our life.
And because of the fall of man, sickness and rust and deterioration and death of the flesh will find its way into every household, saved or unsaved, sanctified or spirit filled. 

It’s not in escaping the negative things that come your way, but in the managing of those things in agreement with and under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, that proves your faith."
