When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you. (Isaiah 43:2 AMP)
I wish to have a life that is free from suffering but I know that’s impossible, not in this life. There is so much pain in this fallen world. The only consolation we have is, God will surely come during those dark days. He is with us in our troubles. By faith we can see and experience Him in the storm. he has plan and purpose in all suffering. In every pain we encounter He is allowing us to experience His love, His grace, His comfort, His mercy, His provision, His power. Our suffering is surely not in vain.
