Can Any Good Come from Hardship?

suffering

Naturally, none of us want to suffer! But we would have to agree that while we live in our imperfect world, there will be seasons of suffering.  God has such enormous love for us, but sometimes when we struggle with life’s circumstances, this is hard to believe.  Whether our suffering is a result of a bad choice we’ve made or from circumstances completely out of our control, it is God’s plan to use the pain suffering brings, not to destroy us-but as a tool to personally and powerfully restore us spiritually and make us stronger than ever. It is our Lord’s desire to establish and ground us securely, and strengthen, and settle us, as we stand against every attack from the enemy with strong, vigorous faith.   In other words, Satan means to use it for evil- BUT God will use it for good. When we struggle, it moves us closer to Him for more grace, mercy, guidance, and aid. This gives the Great I AM another opportunity to reveal the Truth of who He really is. HE IS OUR DELIVERER, SHEPHERD, SAVIOR, HEAVENLY FATHER, and LOVER OF OUR SOUL, GUIDE, LIGHT, and THE MOST POWERFUL POSITIVE FORCE IN THE UNIVERSE! Many times God will use times of sorrow and distress to bring people closer together, as we learn how to love, support, help, and care for one another more. We don’t need to be afraid when hard times enter our lives; because Jesus is able to transform our pain into joy, as we evolve through the spiritual process of growing!  The negative forces of Satan works to use suffering to destroy lives (evil), but God wants to bring good out of what we suffer!  So when we enter a season of suffering, let us remember it is safe to surrender and abandon our lives to the workings of God, because only God has the ability to bring good things out of suffering.

“And then, after your brief suffering the God of all loving grace, who has called you to share in his eternal glory in Christ, will personally and powerfully restore you and make you stronger than ever. Yes, he will set you firmly in place and build you up. And he has all the power needed to do this-forever! Amen” (1Peter 5:10 TpT).

“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace [who imparts all blessing and favor], who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen, and settle you” (1Peter 5:10).
