One reason why we’re fighting against what God is allowing to happen in our lives may be because we’re immature in our faith and we don’t understand that God’s not allowing our suffering to happen in order to hurt us. Instead, He’s trying to help us. He’s not trying to destroy us. He’s trying to develop us.
