Sometimes God allows affliction in our lives to help sanctify us and develop Christlike character. Look at Isaiah 48:10. Regardless, when God is on your side, we know He is working in you and through you to bring about His will, help you fulfill His mission in you, and become more like Jesus. Look at the verses above. You will be greatly encouraged knowing God’s intentions for us as His children. It’s all going to work out in the end!
Romans 8:18; Philippians 1:6, 2:13; Ephesians 2:10; 1 Peter 5:8-10; 2 Corinthians 4:8-17; and 1 John 3:1-3
