Psalm 73:24, You guide me with Your counsel, and afterward You will receive me into glory.
We wonder why God permits us to suffer certain things, and we begin to question His goodness. I have done this on more than one occasion. We live in a broken world, and a world hostile to God. So, why does it surprise us when we suffer and when we see suffering? Suffering belongs in a broken world that continually alienates itself from God. Thus, suffering is our lot in this world; it is our own fault.
Yet for those who know Christ, God promises His presence in the midst of our suffering and brokenness. God has infinite wisdom; He is wisdom. Thus, He knows how to guide us into His glory—to bring us from brokenness into wholeness.
As jars of clay (2 Corinthians 4:7), living life in this broken world is like an earthen vessel being dropped and broken, getting repaired, then broken again, and repaired again, and so on. That is life in this world.
The flesh is weak. We fall and we break, and God guides us into wholeness again; then we fall and break again and God repairs us once more, and so on. In His wisdom, God repairs our brokenness in various ways, no matter how many times we fall and shatter.
