Understanding Suffering Podcast Episode 004

Daphne Delay Podcast 1 Comment

It’s a shame new believers don’t learn about our enemy or the ways in which he deceives and attacks at a very early stage in their walk with God. When you think about it, Spiritual Boot Camp should be mandatory–especially when you consider how many people are suffering under attacks of the enemy and don’t know why.

That’s why one of the most important things every believer must understand is the word suffering. The Bible says, “But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you” (1 Peter 5:10). What does this mean?

In this week’s episode, Daphne and Angie discuss being spiritually prepared and what suffering means in the life of believers. You will definitely find inspiration for your situation in this discussion!

  • Great discussion this week. As I think about a spiritual boot camp, I ask who is the drill instructor who will make us stronger? Immediately I see that we are to “be strong in the Lord and the power of His might” (Eph. 6:10). What is the power of His might in which we will be strong? The Holy Spirit!!! In a sense, He shows us that we need to be indoctrinated – i.e. brainwashed – by “washing” us with the water of His Word, thereby renewing our minds (brains)! “As a man thinks, so is he.” We are in training to learn how to “take every thought captive” and “pull down strongholds”. We are spiritual warriors in the Army of God!
