281 Suffering Is God’s Blessing
1. Don’t be disheartened, don’t be weak. God will reveal to you, God will reveal to you. The road to His kingdom can’t all be smooth sailing. You want to breeze your way to blessings? Nothing comes that easily! Everyone today must be tried by suffering, or else your love for God won’t strengthen, and your love for God won’t be real, won’t be real. Even if it’s a little bit of a situation, everyone, everyone has to go through it. It’s just to different extents. Oh, your situation is God’s blessing. How many, how many often kneel before God to seek His blessing?
2. You always think saying a few auspicious words is blessing, but you never think of suffering as God’s blessing. Those who share in God’s bitter shall certainly share in His sweet. That is God’s promise. That is God’s blessing to you. Safeguard the witness of God with everything you have. Don’t forget, this is the principle of what you do. It’s just that now you lack faith, lack faith, you lack discernment. You can’t figure out God’s word, God’s will. But don’t be anxious. Spend more time before God, don’t pay attention to eating and dressing in the flesh. Try hard to seek God’s will, and God will reveal it to you. Gradually you will find God’s will in all things. It is so God will have a path in every person without hindrance, and God’s heart will receive satisfaction. You will share in blessings with God forever, forever!
