SERIES: LETTERS FROM PRISON
Philippians 1: 9-11
Usually when we talk about suffering we always omit the term joy, we consider that being in suffering is living the opposite of being happy,
The Bible teaches us the opposite, one thing has nothing to do with the other, suffering cannot affect the joy that we carry within, because it does not depend on circumstances but on God, who is the owner of all circumstances.
It may be that at some point you feel sad, that is, you do not feel happiness, but if you are full of joy and that joy that is spiritual sustains you and gives you peace to move forward in God.
Suffering is part of life and although it may not seem like it, it is necessary, Joy is part of God and therefore, it is greater than the afflictions of life.
Today it is necessary to be HAPPY (more than happy) and depend on God, learn that suffering teaches us and makes us grow, we can get good things out of it and move forward, being in God makes us have the correct perspective.
If you can be happy in the midst of suffering when you understand that:
1- Being in God is the key to true Joy
2- Suffering in God forges, teaches and strengthens, brings detachment and cleanses the heart.
3- In the midst of suffering we learn to let go of the past and we are free.
Not everything is bad, fill yourself with joy because God is in and with us.
God always arrives JUST ON TIME
