The list could go on. We are not doomed to an ultimate conflict with no hope of resolution. The message of Scripture is one of victory—full, final, and ultimate victory. Above all suffering and death stands the crucified and risen Lord. He has defeated the ultimate enemy of life. He has vanquished the power of death. He calls us to die, a call to obedience in the final transition of life.
Because of Christ, death is not final. God does not always will healing. If He did, He would suffer endless frustration, seeing His will being repeatedly thwarted in the deaths of His people. He did not will the healing of Stephen from the wounds inflicted by the stones that were hurled against him.
These all died in faith. It was a huge trial which makes sense now. I couldn't do what I do today without that dark night of the soul. It was purposeful and brought me far deeper in my spiritual life. God channeled me into a place that I didn't know existed. Maybe you are going through discouragement today. There is a battle through discouragement and offense designed to silence the prophetic voice at this time. God is raising up a Church to stand with boldness and speak the voice of the Lord.
