“Help me, O LORD my God; save me according to Your lovingkindness. And let them know that this is Your hand; You, LORD, have done it.” (Ps 109:26-27)
Everyone suffers and everyone seeks deliverance from their struggles – this is human.
To suffer righteously and prayerfully and to hope to be delivered in a way that glorifies God – this is Christian.
It shouldn’t be about comfort for us (that is what heaven is for!). It is about the glorification of God through our deliverance. So suffer faithfully as a message and be delivered with thankfulness to Him. The world is watching.
“But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name.” (1 Pet 4:15-16)
