Christians, their situation prepares them for extraordinary service. I.e. the more that situation, the more you draw closer to God, the more that pain the more you draw closer, you fast, you pray. The more that trouble, the more your attention for God.
For our faith to be consistent, it must be based on something more stable than feelings. You need no more than open the eyes of your faith. You’ll not see enough until the eyes of your faith are opened.
When we are in dark, we are likely to be frightened. This is why Christians today; without are fighting, within are fears. Before you can become a Christian you must be adopted by the holy ghost.
