Trust and Have Hope in Him

We all struggle with the question: "Why does God allow us to suffer and ignorantly conclude He no longer cares?" Many great lessons we learn in life came as a result of hardship. Clinging to God during these trials gives us insights to how God works in our life. He doesn't want His children to get hurt. 

The Bible says, "For if He causes grief, then He will have compassion according to His abundant loving kindness. For He does not afflict willingly or grieve the sons of men." (Lam 3:32-33). 

He wants to teach us lessons that sometimes can only be learned through sorrow. Our Lord Jesus is a good example, "Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered." (Heb 5:8). 

Whenever trouble strikes, be still and ask the Lord to show you what you can learn from the situation. We can draw near Him and learn His ways. His sufficient Grace is moving in us. His Spirit is within. Let's call on Him. He will answer. His word declares, "He will teach you great and mighty things that you need to know." (Jer 33:3).

We have a God who listens and gives us Grace. Hope in Him and Trust Him. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
