Our troubles should not diminish our faith, or disillusion us.

We should realize that there is a purpose in our suffering. Problems and human limitations have several benefits:

  1. they remind us of Christ’s suffering for us;
  2. they keep us from pride;
  3. they cause us to look beyond this brief life;
  4. they prove our faith to others;
  5. they give God the opportunity to demonstrate his power. See your troubles as opportunities!

For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! (2 Corinthians 4:17 NLT)
