He is risen and everything changed. Death has lost its power and can no longer bind us. Trials can no longer ultimately defeat us and nothing on this earth can stop God’s kingdom and His glory from coming.
Jesus suffered an excruciating death and somehow, in that miraculous way of His, God used that horrible incident to result in life and blessing to abound to many. It is the concept of one man suffers and many are somehow blessed. Rom 5:15
We are not above our master. If one of us suffers in our individual trials, why would it not also result in blessing to abound to many? God is the same God who worked that miracle with Jesus and He is now our God too, a God that somehow miraculously takes bad things and turns them into blessings. I don’t know how He does it but that is who He is.
And this is what He does for us: Is 61:3 “To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.
He never said your life would be easy, He just promised He’d be faithful in it.
Lam 3:22,23 “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.”
