The Forces coming against and working for the Christian

I find this list both troubling and comforting. Paul was so well acquainted with the full spectrum of good and bad, +/-, ups and downs, blessings and cursings. I have a sneaking suspicion that you may also be the recipient of all the forces listed below.

Stuff happens, that's for sure. But God overrules with His forces of good.

II Cor 1:2-10

Grace 2
Peace 2
Blessing 3
Comfort 3, 4, 5, 6
Tribulation 4
Trouble 4, 8   (pressed out of measure, above strength)
Suffering 5-7
Affliction 6
Consolation 5-8
Salvation 6
Endurance 6
Hope 7
Despair 8
Death 9
Deliverance 10
