Living Victoriously in Difficult Times is a 6-week small-group study for people who are interested in learning for themselves more about what the Bible says on various subjects, but who have only limited time to meet together. In this study you'll examine what the Bible says about suffering and why God allows it. Through the stories of many who persevered through times of testing, along with hope-filled verses, you'll discover how to find joy even when life seems unfair. You'll also learn how to glorify God and walk in His strength, no matter what comes your way! With the leader's notes and Bible passages included right in the book, each self-contained study is a powerful resource for personal growth and small-group discussion.
When painful or frustrating circumstances invade your life, it’s easy to wonder why. Why does life so often seem unfair? Why doesn’t our all-powerful God stop the pain and suffering–not just for you–but for all His children
The truth is, we live in a fallen world filled with fallen people, and we cannot escape hardship and pain. Somehow difficult times are a part of God’s plan and they serve His purposes.
