God gave us more than just one verse to address the problem of suffering--an entire book in the Bible was written to address it. Everything in life has a divine purpose. There is not one renegade molecule running around in this universe that God does not have a plan for. God also understands that we won't always understand. In this message, Dr. Merritt explains how God wants you to experience His grace, love, compassion, mercy and forgiveness in the midst of suffering.
"Even though he was a man of great faith and great faithfulness, Job finally broke and asked that same question that every one of us in this room at one time or another have either asked God or one day will ask God--why?" --Dr. Merritt
