In times of suffering the integrity of God’s goodness presses upon our minds. Faith engages in a wrestling match with our emotions and our trust in God. Should we be surprised by suffering? Could it be that suffering is part of the human condition? A calling ordained by almighty God? In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul addresses the most difficult struggle in human experience: the problem of pain. He shows us that God is involved in our suffering and reminds us that a time is coming when there will be no more pain, death, or sadness.
It is often through the deepest suffering that God teaches His people the deepest lessons. As we trust the Lord in our trials, He brings us to a greater assurance of His love and sovereignty, knowing that He works all things together for the good of those who love Him. In this classic series, Christian author and speaker Elisabeth Elliot (1926–2015) reflects on God’s grace in the midst of hardship, speaking from experience as one whom the Lord carried through great loss. This newly digitized series was originally released in 1989.
