    "No words can express how much the world owes to sorrow. Most of the Psalms were born in the wilderness. Most of the Epistles were written in a prison. The greatest thoughts of the greatest thinkers have all passed through fire. The greatest poets have "learned in suffering what they taught in song." In bonds Bunyan lived the allegory that he afterwards wrote, and we may thank Bedford Jail for the Pilgrim's Progress. Take comfort, afflicted Christian! When God is about to make pre-eminent use of a person, He put them in the fire." -George MacDonald-

    "We can do nothing, we say sometimes, we can only pray. That, we feel, is a terribly precarious second-best. So long as we can fuss and work and rush about, so long as we can lend a hand, we have some hope; but if we have to fall back upon God -- ah, then things must be critical indeed!" -A.J Gossip-

    "Most of us would prefer, however, to spend our time doing something that will get immediate results. We don't want to wait for God to resolve matters in His good time because His idea of 'good time' is seldom in sync with ours.” - Oswald Chambers-

    “If through a broken heart God can bring His purposes to pass in the world, then thank Him for breaking your heart.” - Oswald Chambers-

    “In every Christian’s heart there is a cross and a throne, and the Christian is on the throne till he puts himself on the cross. If he refuses the cross he remains on the throne. Perhaps this is at the bottom of the backsliding and worldliness among gospel believers today. We want to be saved but we insist that Christ do all the dying. No cross for us, no dethronement, no dying. We remain king within the little kingdom of Mansoul and wear our tinsel crown with all the pride of a Caesar, but we doom ourselves to shadows and weakness and spiritual sterility.”

    ― A.W. Tozer, The Radical Cross: Living the Passion of Christ

    Yes, and we can be like pharaoh and rule Egypt which is a picture of the world and the ways of the flesh. Or we can deny ourselves and take up our cross and follow Jesus and suffer affliction with God's people, instead of enjoying the pleasures of sin and this world for a season (which is this lifetime) as Moses who had true faith did and when he rejected Egypt and esteemed the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt.

    Hebrews 11

    By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

    This world should mean nothing to those who truly belong to God and we should be partaking in the sufferings of Christ, denying ourselves and turning from sin dying the death to live by the will of God to bring the love and life of Christ to others.
