It will serve us well if we can accept the fact that problems are a part of life. We can’t escape it. Disappointment, betrayal by those closest to us, failure, loss, sickness — these are normal and to be expected. It’s all because of the nature we have, the world we live in, and the enemy of our souls. It’s most fortunate for us Christians that we have sure promises, in the Bible, that every moment and every incident in our lives come only by Divine sanction. Everything has a good purpose behind it, though we may not see what that purpose is until we meet our Savior face-to-face.
