Seeking Him Podcast

For Our Good

Leslie: This is Seeking Him, with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: God can use suffering in powerful ways to make us more like Jesus.

Sometimes we suffer because we’re being chastened—God’s loving discipline of our sin. Sometimes our suffering is caused by pruning as God cuts away unproductive parts of our lives. And sometimes we experience pain simply because we live in a fallen world.

Whatever the cause, God can use affliction to purge us from sin and to sanctify us.

Maybe you’re going through a season of affliction right now. Can I encourage you? Don’t give up. Keep seeking God, and you’ll look back on this time amazed at how much you’ve grown. Hebrews 12 reminds us "he disciplines us for our good, that we may share his holiness” (v. 10).

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
