For Heaven's Sake, Why Are You Suffereing?

If you are a born again believer, the question is the answer. I was reading my daily devotion from “Streams in the Desert.” Today’s passage was a hard truth. Despite all the scriptures in the Bible that attempt to prepare us christians for the “harsh” reality of suffering and affliction that is part of the package of our christian walk, we still, very often find ourselves blindsided by the shock of trouble and hurt. We even temporarily lose focus of our deliverer, healer, miracle worker and comforter and allow the issue at hand to usurp all of our attention, as if it could ever be more powerful than our Lord Jesus.

The reading from the book said “know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own, and they will be…mistreated four hundred years. But …afterward they will come out with great possessions. (Gen 15:13-14)

I can be sure that the journey to God’s promised blessing for me involves delay and suffering. The delay in Abraham’s lifetime that seemed to put God’s promise well beyond fulfillment was indeed only a delay – the promise was fulfilled. God is going to use delays to prove us, and along with the delays will come suffering. May we be strong, take heart and wait for the Lord (Ps 27:14) regardless of what it LOOKS like or what we DON’T SEE because Hope that is seen is not hope. (Romans 8:24)

The remainder, as QuotesChimp state, is background. As america increased, thus did underwriters. Life assurance policy arrived on the picture, when cars were devised, vehicle insurance policy swiftly adopted. Employees compensation insurance, medical insurance, as well as pre-paid authorized insurance have each created their performances in the truly amazing underwriting phase of existence. Actually, from its modest origins, the insurance business has exploded in to one of many largest monetary power stations in the whole world. Justus

Government benefits. The government is in the insurance game and in QuotesChimp in a big way. Medicare is a health insurance program mostly limited to those age 65 and over. Social Security, among other benefits, provides a form of income insurance (somewhat akin to an annuity) that guarantees a basic level of benefits in return for payments (taxes) paid during working years. Some government entities sell insurance. Others help pay for the cost of insurance that would otherwise be unavailable or cost prohib´┐Żitive. Parts 6 and 7 will describe many of these government plans and benefits in detail. Maryland

I'm one of the authors who reetesuqd this four-month extension. If you'd like a copy of the letter to the judge from our law firm, DeVore & Demarco, you can find it at InklingBooks dot comNote from a footnote on the first page that Google's willingness to accept a two-month extension arose after they were told of our intent to file. This letter and their letter were filed on Friday. The following Monday a letter from a group of academic writers prepared by a law professor at the University of California-Berkeley asked for a six-month extension. The court accepted our extension, midway between the two.Documents filed with U.S. federal courts are expected to follow certain formats, which vary from state to state. A good letter would need to be prepared by an experienced attorney, but this one should provide an example of the proper form.Of particular importance for those outside the U.S. are the copyright treaty obligations involved in this dispute. It's difficult to imagine how a district court could set aside those treaties. Divya
