Insight human suffering

Suffering or misery in a broad sense means the experience of affective distress and hardship of an individual. Suffering can be a form of physical or mental. Varying severity, from mild until Intolerable. Time and frequency factors exacerbate the situation often. In addition to Reviews These factors, a person's attitude toward his Suffering may take into consideration how much misery it, whether it can be avoided, its use and whether they are Appropriate.
Every person ever has suffered. There are many causes of human suffering such as a result of sin, due to act stupid, or because it is the reality of living in a sinful world. However, there are also those who suffer according to the will of God to accomplish his mission, including the Apostles Jesus who the end of his life to death for being persecuted, tortured, crucified even beheaded like the Apostle Paul..
Between the word of God and the reality
James wrote “My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
Jas 1:3 knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience (James 1: 2-3). This word is guide and strength to believers when they are not able to pass through suffering or temptation. Believers are expected to face misery with joy, because human beings can not avoid but have to deal with it.
In fact of life, those who facing temptations diligently and do not complain are rare. Generally, one can blame them, or others even complain to God when they do not succeed or fail or illness is not cured. Usually the question arises: What is my sin to God? Sometimes, someone was dismissed from his job doe to the economic crisis is not because of his sin. Understanding the incorrect meaning of suffering which may present a spiritual attitude that not true too. Let us remember the Prophet Elijah who faced temptation when there is a drought (I Kings 17: 5-6), but Elijah had to face the future with a determined and lean on command and the help of God.
The wisdom of misery
In the face of suffering, the key is our own attitude to understand the suffering that we face, whether diligent and patient face or increased frustration. There is some wisdom to be gained when faced with suffering:
First: the suffering brought spiritual maturity (Romans 5: 3-5; James 1: 2-4). Suffering is part of the process live Christian hope (I pet 4:13; 5: 1, 10). No crisis no growth. In our suffering is growing up, getting closer primarily to God
Secondly, the pressures of suffering have educated us to be patient, loving our opponent. Use of the wrong tool to solve the problems such as violence may destroy the destination. Violence is never effective to solve the problem. But the spiritual and moral strength in the form of genuine love, kindness, patience, generosity, always hopeful in God, irrespective of any group. It will create unity, and peace of heart, we entrust vengeance is in the hands of God (cf. Rom 12: 12-21).
Third, for believers, Jesus suffered and died for our sins. People should be aware of the debt of gratitude that is not measurable in Him. They should reply with the offering of their body and soul to Jesus Christ (cf. Rom 12: 1) although they face of suffering for God's mission to be carried.
Thus the apostle Paul reminds us that all the suffering that we face today is not comparable to the glory we will enjoy in the future as children of God (Rom: 8: 18). Therefore, remain persistent in prayer dams always hope in the Lord
