Hello all, our sermon is now online. We looked at seven ways God helps us through suffering. The main points were as follows…

  1. God helps us to understand why there is suffering
  2. God is our refuge who promises to help
  3. God promises to never leave us during our suffering
  4. God assures us that our suffering has purpose
  5. God understands our suffering
  6. God promises to give us strength
  7. God promises that our suffering will not last forever

We can’t escape suffering, but God can help us make sense of it, comfort us and help us through. I will finish with the red-letter words of Jesus from John 16:33

“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in Me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”

The full text can be found here. As there was some very personal testimonial stories, it was not recorded.

God Bless,
Dave
