GOD IS NOT THE CREATOR OF EVIL AND SUFFERING

Genesis 1:31God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.
Moral evil produces suffering

Romans 3:23 says “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Natural evil produces suffering

Nature corrupted with thorns and thistles (Genesis 3:18)
Suffering became part of the human experience because of sin
CURRENT SUFFERING PALES IN COMPARISON TO WHAT GOD HAS IN STORE FOR US
The promise: No more crying, tears, pain or suffering
OUR SUFFERING IS TEMPORARY
OUR SUFFERING DEVELOPS US
God allows pain for a purpose
Suffering develops our hope and patience
Hope: The SETTLED CONFIDENCE that looks to the future knowing God will keep His
promises

Patience: The ability to ENDURE today because of our hope in the future
OUR SUFFERING ACTIVATES THE HOLY SPIRIT
Our suffering reveals weakness
Prayer of suffering: “Oh God!”
Decision: Turn bitter or turn to God in suffering
God offers His PEACE to deal with our present

God offers COURAGE to deal with our future
When suffering, remember that God loves you
