Triumphs that cause pain
“And she said, “Father, if you have made a vow to the Lord, you must do to me what you have vowed, for the Lord has given you a great victory over your enemies, the Ammonites. When she returned home, her father kept the vow he had made, and she died a virgin.”
Judges 11:36, 39 NLT
Some times, God will allow that our greatest triumphs, cause us great pain.
Definitely this is something paradoxical and not easy to understand; even perhaps we never get to fully understand it.
However, through it, God will always have something to teach us; our calling is to remain faithful to the Lord and what we promise Him.
