Are You Suffering Right Now?

Suffering is a fundamental part of the Christian faith (2 Timothy 3:12). And your Godly response to it grows through encountering God and meditating on His Word. The following verses, when memorized, can encourage you toward a Godly response to suffering.

But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. (Genesis 50:20 KJV)

The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. (Psalms 9:9 KJV)

Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. (Psalms 34:19 KJV)

I know, O Lord, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me. (Psalms 119:75 KJV)

Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. (Romans 12:21 KJV)

And my personal favorite:

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4 KJV)

Try to memorize these verses and you will find that they do indeed help!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Howdy! I’m Collin, 16 years old, and a homeschooled junior. I play the piano, ukulele, and many sports. I’m far from perfect, and that’s why I love to share (through this blog) what God is showing me in His word. Although I have many favorite Bible verses, if I had to choose one it would be Romans 12:12, Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” I believe that prayer is the most powerful tool we are given as Christians and it should not be taken for granted. Toodles!
