Why do we suffer and struggle at times? What is the secret to ‘grow-up’ spiritually and win the Lord’s Grace?
There are three types of people: (1) non-believers, who consider worldly objects as real; (2) those who believe in a will behind all that they see and experience, and bow to that will. They try to understand that will, adhere to it and will not run against it; and (3) those who have realised that the objective world has only relative value. The latter two will not blame anyone, including the Lord, for their ills and pains. Until the son or daughter is a minor, they will not be entitled to their share of parental property. When your spiritual practices are not strong enough to chart your own destiny, you suffer and struggle. When you say, “I, I, I”, you are on your own, you may even stumble and fall. Say, “Not I, but You,” then all things are added unto you! Results of past actions simply will melt away like fog before the sun when you call out to the Lord!
