Triumph Over Suffering

We are the clay; You are the Potter.        – Isaiah 64:8

Deception #1:  God wants your life to be easy and comfortable.

God’s truth:
“In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33 NIV

When life is smooth, we forget what is important, we become wrapped up in worldly things like money, work, health, power, prestige, well-being, relationships, and even church and volunteer work.   Suffering forces us to take time out from the usual hustle and bustle of our lives to evaluate our lives in view of eternity, to reprioritize our lives according to God’s will.
