Why can’t we come to an understanding with God? Because it’s not enough to simply hear the truth of God. It takes courage and willingness to accept whatever the truth of God has to say to you. It takes courage and willingness to accept whatever the truth of God wants to bring to your soul. And you should practically apply the truth of God in your life.
It will take a lot of time and a lot of learning and suffering for the soul to be introduced to the mystery of salvation, to be reborn, to be as Christ wants it to be, to be made as He wants it made.
It is part of the divine economy when a soul is alone in the world, without any support. It makes the soul trust in God more intensely, run to God more willingly, pray more fervently.
This way, even when the most negative thing happens to us, it can be seen as a positive one.
