Affliction can also make us stronger in our faith and develop our confidence in God’s watch care over us. It may also drive us back to the right path when we have wandered.
David said, “Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your Word” (Psalm 119:67).
Whatever the reason, if God sends affliction your way, take it in faith as a blessing, not a curse.
