HOW CAN WE REMEMBER GOD’S LOVE IN TIMES OF SUFFERING?
God will never leave us or forsake us. He is always there, ready to comfort us. Continue below to learn how we can remember God in times of suffering.
WHEN WE SUFFER, WE CAN:
Recognize God’s help and presence in painful situations.
When we suffer, we can think about how God has helped us in the past. We can also think of how God has delivered his people in the Bible when they suffered (Psalm 107: 28–31). This can bring us comfort (Psalm 77:2–3, 11–12).
Learn God’s Truth.
As we follow Jesus and study the Bible, we learn the truth about God, and this helps us become free from the lies of Satan (John 8:31–32).
