The fact is that everyone experiences periods of suffering. That is true for individuals, families, and churches. Unfortunately, many Christians seem to believe that pain is the greatest evil. We tend to ask why it is happening to us and then to look for solutions as quickly as we can.
2 Corinthians 12:1-10 is written to show us how God can turn trials into instruments in His hands that can lead us to trust God beyond what we’ve believed Him before and to become more of what He wants.
The question is not if we will experience trials. We all will. The problem is what we will do with them.
