2 Samuel 12:22-23 – And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether God will be gracious to me, that the child may live? But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.
Meditation – one of the major elements of the spiritual growth and maturation process is understanding and accepting the ultimate will of The Lord. Sometimes we pray; and, pray; and, pray, and the answer of the Lord is no. When the Lord confirms the decision, we must accept it and move on. The resilience we show in the face of our loss will show our ultimate Faith and dedication to The Lord.
