Suffering

Suffering ultimately is a part of God’s exalted purposes and is always under His perfect sovereign care. Jesus Christ was not as concerned with what caused the suffering as with the way to relieve it and the way He would use it to show God’s glory. He would act in divine power to demonstrate God’s love and power. We struggle to understand God’s will, but we can be assured God loves and cares for His people.

What a comfort to know that the One who sees all things loves people intensely! He commits Himself unconditionally to us and to our salvation Patiently and persistently, He pursues His purpose for us through His Holy Spirit. When Jesus reprimands us, He changes us. He may choose to use difficult circumstances, but He never causes needless pain. He redeemed us, and He graciously empowers us to live a new kind of life for His glory. His cross and resurrection guarantee His work in our lives.
