When we go through troubles for the sake of the gospel, God gives us His strength. He is with us. He comes alongside us. Why? First, He comforts us so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction. We come alongside others in their time of hurt. Further, He leads us to rely on Him more and more as we set our hope on Him who raises the dead. Finally, He leads us to give Him our praise and prayers. We praise God for His help, and we pray to God for His help.
