God does not willingly afflict

RR-April 21, 2016     By Thomas Charles (From: Afflicton its use and Benefits)   “For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.” Hebrews 12:6 Affliction comes not forth out of the dust, neither does trouble spring out of the ground,” but they are all sent in wisdom and…
