What is 'the good' that God wants for you/me? Is it not to know God, to trust him, have faith in him, to serve him better then we currently do. So what stops us from doing this, could it be our prosperity?
If God is going to do us 'good' we might think it hard to loose those things that get between us and God.

What would you accept if it brought you closer to God ?  All things work together for good, in Pauls experience:- shipwreck, beatings, cold, hardship, danger, threats of death etc etc and he called it light and momentary trouble.

Yes of course, excellent scripture



2 Corinthians 4:17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.


"Our" affliction,troubles,persecution,attacks, being that they are shared

"Our" affliction affliction,troubles,persecution,attacks, being that they will come

"Our" affliction affliction,troubles,persecution,attacks, being that they are not
assigned to an individual

"Our" affliction affliction,troubles,persecution,attacks, being that they are appointed by the Father


He seeing that the provision is made

He seeing that Grace might abound

He seeing that with the greatness of the trouble is the larger abundance of Love

He seeing to it that support may come

He seeing to it that there is a way out, but not from the circumstance


That through all things He will work for the Good

That through all things He has a purpose

That through all things He has a plan

That through all things He reason

That through all things in these short days of tribulation His name might be known

That through all things an  eternal Glory will be achieved


An eternal "weight" of Glory that outweighs them all

2 Corinthians 4:7-8 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

Afflictions do not just precede Glory; they produce  Glory

Good posts.

So the Spiritual Battlefield, is it individual battles with breathers in between, or is it one big life long battlefield, where it only ends when you die?

Seasons come and seasons go I think

A season can be for 10 days or ten years

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 1There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:

Within Ecclesiastes 3:1 is seen the providence of God

Arranged and timed as if nothing happens by chance but all has a reason, meaning and purpose

As a sparrow falls to the ground so there is a time for every purpose within a given season

An appointed time or season given by God for all things to be that will be

A  time of preparation within  the hidden years [not seen by others] or  unseen years which  are hidden as even unto God [forgiven and forgotten]

Being literal and figurative as a time of  war and a time to uproot, a time to plant and a  time to harvest


Nehemiah 1:3 and Jeremiah 52:14 The whole Babylonian army, under the commander of the imperial guard, broke down all the walls around Jerusalem.


As a time when  weakness can be strength, when the walls in the time of war are broken down, torn down  and the stones are scattered  and all seems barren and lost, yes sing O barren woman


A time to be born , a time to plant

Nehemiah 4:17 and Nehemiah 6:15 So the wall was completed on the twenty-fifth of Elul, in  fifty-two days.


A time for the walls of that City to be built up again to search and  gather stones to keep and to mend the broken down walls and the fallen gates, so that the house will stand strong on solid ground in which bring a time to laugh and dance and embrace and speak up and a time of peace

 Ephesians 2:19-20  19 Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow  citizens with God?s people and also members of his household, 20 built on the foundation of the  apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone

It's both Serenity,
     Satan isn't daft, when we're strong and resist him he departs, waiting for us to drop our guard. When we not expecting it he returns to tempt us. This struggle goes on all life long.
