3 Necessary Truths for Suffering

suffering-paula-smith-heffelThree truths to store away in your heart for when the rain inevitably comes.

Jerry Bridges:

In the arena of adversity, the Scriptures teach us three essential truths about God— truths we must believe if we are to trust Him in adversity. They are:

• God is completely sovereign.

• God is infinite in wisdom.

• God is perfect in love.

Someone has expressed these three truths as they relate to us in this way: “God in His love always wills what is best for us. In His wisdom He always knows what is best, and in His sovereignty He has the power to bring it about.” (Taken from Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts, (pp. 18-19).

Three anchors for our souls when all around us gives way. As Spurgeon once said, “When you can’t trace His hand, you must learn to trust His heart.”
