Though the truth of Scripture cannot dull the pain caused by the occurrence of genetic anomalies, when we grasp the truth of God’s sovereignty we begin to understand that pain and suffering are never wasted in God’s plan. Indeed His most important lessons are taught in the wilderness, through affliction and tribulation. Our very redemption was purchased by the painful suffering of our Savior Christ Jesus on the Via Dolorosa and the mount of Calvary.
