There is No Promise Without Suffering

There is No Promise Without Suffering

Have you ever read an autobiography or watched a documentary on someone’s life? And think to yourself wow! They had it rough! The people who have the darkest past often have some of the brightest futures. People who have done great things in the world often had to overcome some of the hardest circumstances.

The bible tells us in Roman 5:3-4 to rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope.


You can not get to the promise without suffering, because when we make it on the other side we will never be the same again. You’re stronger, wiser, fearless, and have hope that if God has brought you out of this situation he can bring you out of any situation. The suffering is there to teach you, mold you, and develop you into the person you need to become. If you resist the hard times and you give up, then you are resisting God. You have to learn how to press through and keep going despite your circumstances. So rejoice in hard times your suffering is not in vain.


Here are three tips to help you endure long suffering:

  1. You need vision. You have to be able to see beyond your circumstances. (Faith)
  2. Know that God is in control. The thing that you are worried about you have no control over. You’re not doing anything. You’re being done. Many times its not a coincidence that you don’t have money or you find yourself in a bind. It’s a test. Allow God to finish the work he started in you.
  3. Look on the bright side of things. Don’t worry about what you don’t have but focus on what you do. If you don’t have it then you don’t need it.
  4. Laugh! Yes, laugh out loud. It’s good for the soul. Don’t take life too serious. Life is a journey you have to enjoy it along the way.


God loves you and so do  I,

Jordan Thorpe
