Divine Suffering

“The Lord fulfill his purpose for me”

Psalm 138:8

It has never been completely understood by human reasoning how divine suffering develops a deep level of holiness or spirituality. It is hard to go so deep in the things of God without a season of great suffering. At its end, a person may emerge no longer asking God for deliverance but praying not my will but thy will be done.

Let us pray:

Lord, whenever a season of divine suffering overtakes our lives, help us to suffer without becoming discouraged. We desire to move beyond our worse case scenario imaginations to the calm place of “all things work together for the good of those who love him.” (Romans 8:28) We walk out of own strength, our own ideas, our own wisdom, our own plans into the blessings of total submission to you, the Lord being our helper. In Jesus name make the quietness of eternity keep our hearts, minds, souls and body. Amen.
