No one likes to suffer but yet we all do at some point in our lives. The question is whether we’re suffering with a Godly purpose or suffering from our bad decisions. If you’ve made a decision such as to purchase unnecessary stuff and find yourself suffering financially, it’s probably time to take action and reverse the suffering. However, if you’re in an uncomfortable situation because of an inconvenience to your schedule due to helping others, it may just be a suffering with a Godly purpose. What are you suffering for?
So if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God, keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you.
~ 1 Peter 4:19 [NLT]
