We exist to magnify God and spread a passion for His glory by making disciples and shepherding them to value Jesus Christ above everything else.
8 Ways God Works Suffering For Our Good
by Pastor Patrick Carmichael
As we've been studying through the Psalms together as a church, one of the questions we've been wrestling through is how God is specifically working for our good in the midst of the suffering He is sovereignly ordaining and allowing. As His waves and His breakers crash over our souls, pinning us under and leaving us fighting for air, is all of this in vain? We know the Bible says it is accomplishing something. But what is that?
I found this post from Tim Challies most encouraging and helpful to just begin to skim the surface of the answer to that question. Taken from Puritan author Thomas Watson's The Divine Cordial, Challies marks 8 ways God is working in our suffering. May our hearts be encouraged to lay hold of Christ and His promises in the midst of the dark seasons of our souls.
