In this short video I go over:
Why suffering exists, what God plans to do about it and how God can use suffering for our good.
The 4 reasons God allows suffering in our lives (S.O.A.P.)
- Sanctification (Make us more like Christ) – James 1:2-4, Rom 5:3-5, Romans 8:28-29.
- Others – Comfort others, with comfort we received from God through our suffering (2 Cor 1:3-4)
- Appreciation of God’s Glory – Praise for God sovereignty, thankfulness for Him growing you
- Position – God allows events to happen to move us into different positions that are a part to a larger plan. (Genesis 37-50)
