History is filled with the accounts of men and women whose lives were overwhelmed with suffering, pain and loss, yet because of their faith in Christ, they could still say with confidence that all will be well. How is it possible for someone to go through such devastating trials and still know that God is good? Trouble and heartache will visit us all in this life. Do you know how to stand firm when the storms begin to blow?

Out of all the commands God gives in the Bible, there is one in particular that people have a hard time hearing.

They will actually bring us freedom and joy! Are we willing to hear what God wants to teach us?
