Four points that God tells Paul in Romans when Paul asks for relief from a trial----2 Cor. 12:8-10 and how we can look at trials in our life. God wants us to have faith in Him and remain faithful.
How was Paul able to remain strong? He obeyed God, he stayed on track, he focused on his calling---the commission that God gave him, even though not fully understanding how things would play out, but he remembered the big picture. God is in charge, God has a plan. Paul/we need to be faithful---holding fast, doing His will.
