(Romans 8:35-39) KJV

Adversity / Affliction and the Bible

God is in control. Nothing in His universe happens by chance or accident. For every effect there is a cause. God "worketh all things after the counsel of His own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory". "In Christ we too have been claimed as God’s own possession, since we were predestined according to the one purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of his will so that we, who were the first to set our hope on Christ, would be to the praise of his glory." Ephesians 1:11

When a hurting person takes his view of life from what he is experiencing, from what he sees and feels, that's one time when he needs to draw near to God. "Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and make your hearts pure, you double-minded." James 4:8

God does send adversity and affliction to His own. They are His gifts to us, "For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth". “For the Lord disciplines the one he loves and chastises every son he accepts.” Hebrews 12:6

This is God's promise that He will place a limit upon the severity of the trial and that He will give us sufficient strength to bear up under it. "No trial has overtaken you that is not faced by others. And God is faithful: He will not let you be tried beyond what you are able to bear, but with the trial will also provide a way out so that you may be able to endure it." 1 Corinthians 10:13

David testified how his affliction benefited him spiritually. "Before I was afflicted I used to stray off, but now I keep your instructions." Psalm 119:679
