A word from Jill: The reason for your suffering

The reason for suffering

Have you ever wondered about the reason for your suffering? The darkness of the depression that surrounds your grief or difficulty can be so deep that it seems no end is in sight.

The Bible tells us Job wondered aloud why life is even given to those who must suffer. It seemed to him that death would be far better (Job 3:20-23). However, there was a point to Job’s pain. Job learned lessons through his suffering that he couldn’t have learned any other way.

Job learned he had an intercessor and a witness in heaven, an advocate on high who counted his tears (Job 16:19-20) and could lift him out of depression. Job also learned that God is the living Redeemer (Job 19:25) who would stand upon the earth at last. Job knew that one day he’d have a new body instead of the terribly painful, disintegrating one he suffered in this present world.

Wonderfully, Job came out of his dark tunnel with new insight. He said to God, “I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes” (Job 42:5). Somehow you see God in the dark in a way you seldom see Him in the light. That glimpse of God’s glory, as Job discovered, made a terrible ordeal worthwhile.

In other words, God’s presence became more important than God’s protection. God’s presence was enough.
