Finding Purpose in Hardship - Dr. James A. Scudder

Today's Scripture: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

There are times in our lives when we face tremendous struggles. Have you ever reached a point where you’ve stated, “God, I just don’t know how I can get through this!” Maybe you’re struggling even now with some burden that’s too overbearing. You simply can’t see a way out.

In times of suffering and tragedy, God is still working out His purpose. However, it is often after we experience our crises that we understand this purpose. We may discover that our circumstances were the very tools God used to change us and help us be more like Christ.

Not only do our circumstances build our relationship with God, but they can also strengthen our relationships with people. Once I have experienced hardships and seen others suffer, I am more sensitive toward their suffering.

Are you experiencing intense suffering? Are you desperate for answers? Jehovah-Shammah—the Lord is there. He is working behind the scenes in your life for your good and His glory. He longs to draw you closer to Him and use your experience in the lives of others.

Romans 8:28 has been an encouragement to many people over the years, myself included: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Remember these words, and you will find encouragement—even when it hurts.

Devotional by Dr. James A. Scudder
