What You'll Discover in this Episode:
Self-Counsel In Your Suffering
In this episode, we continue our conversation about self-counsel as we fall into trials. The Lord wants to develop steadiness and depth in our faith walk so that we are equipped to help others.
What questions do we need to ask ourselves to help with our anxiety and fear? How can you find strength, healing, and hope in the midst of your suffering so that you become equipped to better counsel and help others?
"...our lives are few of days and full of trouble." God's favor or disfavor is how a person responds to affliction. You have the power that God promises to make your faith more genuine as you pass through the fire. We are invited to bring our need, our troubles, our afflictions, our loneliness into the heart of God's grace for deliverance, for answers, for help in our time of need.
Here are the questions you need to ask yourself:
- What is the most significant suffering you have experienced in the past?
- What is the hardest thing you are facing right now?
- What are you afraid that you might go through someday?
We all have troubles. It is obvious from the Scripture that God acts and speaks through affliction. C.S. Lewis said this, “God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us to our conscience but shouts in our pain.” True faith deepens, brightens, and grows wise as we know God through suffering. It is important to know that we are all going to have trials and difficulties.
