He Can Use Your Affliction for His Glory

Because afflictions cost of so much, they are too precious to waste. Though God may not cause your affliction, he can use your affliction for his glory, others good, and ignore growth, if you’re in Christ. Only by trying less to dissect and avoid our sufferings and instead embracing them as opportunities in Christ to grow, glorify God, and share the gospel will we began to “not lose heart,” and instead find joy in our circumstances, whatever they may be.
