“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” II Corinthians 1:3-4
There are many Christians who have been unintentionally hurt by a minister, or by another Christian. These hurting Christians drawback from fellowship, refusing to again expose their need, and consequently they become spiritually crippled.
If they had the understanding that there was a higher “purpose” in the Lord allowing them to be hurt, then the negative consequences could be avoided, and their fellowship among Christians restored and enhanced.
“But He knows the way that I take: when He has tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” Job 23:10
