Isaiah 66:9.. God's promise. My Bible says the reverse: "Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery?" says your God. The pain comes first, as if it must come first and not so much that birth or something good, always follows pain. A message of hope either way but the painted sign is a bit softer and more hopeful. Fitting.
"For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things [a]impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39 AMP)
The peace the world gives normally costs and is so short-lived, but there is a lasting superior peace to be had for free that passes all understanding (Phil.4:7). Why destroy urself with chemicals that make u feel peaceful for a time? Ditch all illicit / prescription drug abuse. www.knowgod.org Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you AS THE WORLD GIVES. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid" (Jn. 14:27).
