If you choose to embrace your suffering rather than running from it, your pain can turn to praise as God brings good purposes out of the suffering he has allowed into your life. Here’s how you can respond to suffering by inviting God to turn your pain into praise:
Offer your suffering to God. Rather than pleading with God to take your suffering away, view it as a gift that God has allowed to come to you so you will seek Him more and experience His grace in deeper ways. Keep in mind that the same thing that evil forces may intend to destroy you can become what leads you to experience more of God’s blessings in your life. What will determine whether your suffering leads to negative or positive results in your life is how you respond to it. Decide that you will respond to any type of suffering – from illness, grief, broken relationships, financial problems, depression, etc. – by surrendering it to God in prayer, asking Him to use it for good in your life and trusting Him to do so.
