Having faith in in God's ways especially when we do not understand them or God’s path for us a difficult or painful path is essential to our growth as disciples of Jesus. When we stand faithful in our suffering, we shine gloriously in the heavenly realms. When we are faithful in our suffering, we help non-Christians understand that life does not have to be a random flow of events - because it is not. God designs every moment to reveal his goodness to us. At the end of our lives we will be without excuse because God has been coming to us in every moment of every day - only the condition of spiritual eyes and heart keep us from responding.
