“Blessed is the one whom God corrects; so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty.“
This life has few guarantees, but one of them is suffering.
Now I’d be lying if I said this sounds like joyous news. Coincidentally this verse is saying just that.
Sometimes God allows us to go through trials and tribulations, not in hopes that we will fail but in hopes that we will flourish.
God uses the suffering of this world to polish our faith, temper our patience and strengthen our relationship with him.
All of this is done so that we are prepared to do what God has planned for us, plans for us to prosper and Glorify God.
When troubles arise in your life, be thankful with all of your heart. Take comfort knowing that God is polishing your faith and giving you strength that cannot be found in this world.
God Bless you.
