IS GOD PUNISHING ME?

  • BIBLICAL REFERENCE POINTS:  1 John 1:9, Revelation 12:10; Philippians 3:12-14
  • How will you ever know if God is truly punishing you?  This may be an example of God allowing your circumstances in order to put His awesome work on display!  (See question 1)  Even if you are absolutely certain in your soul that your child’s special need is a direct result of your sinful actions (fetal alcohol syndrome may be an example), God offers you complete forgiveness.  Furthermore, we cannot turn back the hands of time to rewrite certain lines of our life story.  God wants us to put our past sins behind us, and strain forward toward the precious life He is offering us.  Don’t let “the accuser” hold you captive in wondering if your child’s diagnosis is a punishment from God!
