One of the greatest stumbling blocks in our life can be any form of suffering. Be it sickness, jobless, or disease. We all will suffer. Oftentimes it can be of our own doing. That can make us feel our life has been ruined.
Not all suffering is intended by God. We must know the difference and not blame it all on God. We may create it ourselves out of disobedience. That will cause us to sin because we were not obedient.
Suffering is the result of sin that started with man. Genesis tells us how Adam and Eve went against God’s instructions and sinned against Him. They were disobedient. As a result, sin came from man and woman’s disobedience.
We live in a fallen world. Suffering is to be expected. But the difference is in how you handle it. When stumbling blocks get in your way, don’t let temptation stop you from reaching your destination. Through faith, God can crush temptation.
No matter what form of suffering you may experience. Know that God’s grace is sufficient. God can use it to accomplish a greater good. Have faith. Persevere. Endure.
Be blessed! -JD
