7 Reasons God allows Pain and Suffering


God does't create pain and suffering in this world. However, He is in control of the whole universe. He allows pain and suffering.

If you are a Christian who is saved by the Grace of God, through Faith in Christ and are assured of Salvation and Eternal Life, you need not worry about suffering and pain in this life like the unsaved people. Why? Because, you have something much greater than what a perfect happy life on earth can offer. You have the Gift of Salvation and assurance of spending Eternal Life in Heaven.

God allows suffering and pain in the life of a Christian for the following reasons and many others beyond our understanding.

1) Suffering and Pain re-shapes your character

2) Suffering makes you focus on God

3) Suffering reminds us that this is not our home. Our home is in heaven. We are just pilgrims and aliens in this world.

4) Suffering produces patience, endurance and other fruits of the Spirit

5) Suffering and Pain makes you forsake your sinful habits and turn to God

6) Your hope in the midst of suffering is a witness to the lost world.

7) You may suffer and have pain, so that you may be means of comfort to someone who would go through similar pain.
