When we experience
sorrows in this life, we should always remember God is compassionate and loving.
We never want to forget that in this life sin produces countless struggles and sorrows and not everyone has the same amount of faith—some have tiny faith, some have great faith.
Regardless, we can count on God to keep all of His promises to believers.
There are additional truths in the Bible which give us encouragement.
First, life on this earth is only temporal. James 4:14 says, “How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.” (NLT)
Second, God offers eternal life to all who trust Him. We see this vividly in John 3:16. “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” (NLT)
Third, God allows both the godly and the godless to experience trials, suffering, and pain in this life. We can see this in the lives of Ruth, Job, and Jeremiah.
No, this world won’t be free of suffering until the Lord makes the new heavens and new earth.
I very much look forward to the joys and delights of heaven and the new heavens and earth. What about you?
