Value to Our Suffering

For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. (2 Corinthians 1:5) 
Is there any value to our suffering?
We identify with Christ in all ways, namely experiencing the heartache of this world.
But Jesus experienced the comfort of God and we will, also!
Jesus experienced victory over the enemy and we will.
Jesus conquered death, and we will. 
So let us comfort those who are afflicted from the overflow of our comfort. 

Let all that we experience in this life, good and bad, be so that we would know Him more! 
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4
When I read this devotion it blessed me. I know for some it may be hard to understand. Why would God allow certain things to happen, why, why, why, we ask so many times but if we would stop and see it through a different lens we would see just what today’s devotion is saying. God allows things to happen for a reason. Circumstances will either direct you, correct you or perfect you. John 13:7, Jesus said, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. Trust Him in and through all things.
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
