Good morning.

We need wisdom to know how to respond to suffering. This means we should see trials from God’s viewpoint and understand His purposes in allowing them in our life. If we want to be sustained in our struggles, and come through with joy, we must believe:

• The Lord is in control. Our trials won’t go beyond the boundaries He has set.

• He has a specific purpose for our suffering.

• This hardship will prove to be profitable if we submit to God and trust Him through it.

• Trying situations are opportunities for faith to prove genuine and grow stronger.

• God will walk with us through all our difficulties.

• When we endure suffering with inexplicable peace and joy, God will demonstrate His sustaining power to others.

If we believe these principles, they will shape how we respond to painful challenges. This perspective eliminates the negative reactions and makes supernatural responses possible. Instead of feeling miserable and hopeless, we’ll experience amazing peace and joy.

So, instead of feeling hopeless and discouraged by trials, we can choose to walk with God in peace and joy.
