FINDING VICTORY THROUGH SUFFERING....

Everyone born in this world lives in different ways and with different natures. Likewise, even in godly ways, they are different from one another. Whatever it is, no words can describe the sufferings that each one goes through every day. Those who languish in poverty say, “When do our conditions change?” Some are caught up in family problems and lament with tears, “Is there any way our life can blossom?’ When we think of the sufferings that each one undergoes, many wonder why they were born in this world. However, Paul, the chosen servant of God, found victory in all these worldly troubles and said finally,

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing” (II Timothy 4:7,8).

From what he wrote to Timothy, his beloved son, who did ministry along with him, we can infer that not only him but every one of us who lives in this world can receive such victories, and the path to reach it.

“But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called...” (I Timothy 6:11,12)

Yes, ‘true Christian life’ is fullof troubles. Perhaps, the lives of those who compromise with the world, who do what their flesh and mind desire and who consider this worldly life to be a priority with no goal and say, ‘Let us eat, drink, be merry and die tomorrow’ may not face any trouble. However, it is God’s ordinance that those who genuinely want to live as disciples of Christ pass through various kinds of troubles.

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12)

From his own experience, Paul has said that we can overcome such troubles, live a victorious life.
Let us elaborately see the ways he has mentioned:
