Suffering in the Believer's Life

From Series: Dangers, Toils and Snares

Lamentations 2:20 (ID: 2090)

We may not understand God’s specific purposes for the suffering we face. As Alistair Begg points out, however, ignoring suffering does not work, nor does suffering in and of itself bring us closer to God. Instead, the right way to deal with suffering is to bow under the sovereignty of God’s purposes and see our circumstances through the lens of the cross. Only then can we trust God’s plan amidst difficulty, even without seeing the whole picture.
