The Lord Allows Us To Suffer So That We Can Grow In Faith And Provide Counsel To Others

Job 4:5  King James Version (KJV)
5 But now it is come upon thee, and thou faintest; it toucheth thee, and thou art troubled.

Job was a good man who gave excellent advice but until he suffered himself, his advice was head knowledge only.  The Lord allows suffering and sorrow to befall his dear people at times so they have the moral right and authority to give authentic help and words of wisdom.  When they say “I know” they really mean it.  Never, if possible, minister beyond your experience.  -Brian Russell

Can we find a friend so faithful, Who will all our sorrows share?  Jesus knows our every weakness, Take it to the Lord in prayer.  -J. S. Scriven
