James 5:13-17

It is so hard to understand why God allows suffering. In our scripture today, James gives us a little perspective. Now really think about this; why would God allow suffering? God, who in His infinite wisdom, allowed His own prophets to suffer in the hands of the sinful people whom they were ministering to. You see it all through the old testament, but why? Because all these prophets are examples of patient endurance in suffering for us and we need to follow their footsteps today. Let us not forget that even though they went through great trials and sufferings, they endured them all with patience. If we want to be blessed, it is only reasonable to conclude that we will be called upon to do the same! God will allow us to bend but not break. Storms don’t last forever, but God’s love does. God loves Ya 😉
