Have you noticed the series of listed troubles that are in 2
Corinthians? They are in chapters 1, 4, 6, 8, and 12. Have you also seen the
comfort, thanksgiving, glory, rejoicing, grace, and strength in the same
chapters? Please take a look and notice the connection.

I will listen to what God the LORD will say;

He promises peace to his people,

His saints—but let them not return to folly.

(Psalm 85:8)
