The Secret of Enduring (III)

If we respond properly, distress can actually be a gift. Pain can provide tremendous impetus to pray- if we will allow it to catapult us into God’s face instead of polarizing us away from Him.

One of the greatest challenges, in the place of hardship, is to suffer a long time with joy…Being joyful in suffering is a godly quality, for God Himself is “patience and long-suffering with joy.”

When we are called to endure with joy, it is imperative we find the solace of the secret place…Simply put, godly endurance is impossible apart from a well-nurtured secret life with God.

The only way to be joyful in trials is through “knowing” – knowing God’s purpose in it.
