One of the most comforting truths of our faith is this: that God does not abandon us in our suffering. And one of the biggest misconceptions is this: That God caused the suffering and brought evil upon you. Yes, we all suffer. Some of the most faithful Christians have endured great pain and suffering. And yes, because God is Redeemer, He can bring great good out of great suffering. God did not give you cancer, harm your kid, or send the hurricane. If you are in emotional or physical pain today, know that God is not the source of your suffering. He is the source of your comfort.
God did not lead you into this present suffering, but he has promised he’ll stay with you there. He’s promised to mend every broken thing. This is the hope of resurrection.
Thank You, Jesus.
