For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! 2 Corinthians 4:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
Those who say that being a Christian is easy are definitely not a Christian.
Being a Christian means a lifetime of suffering. We will be rejected, mocked and be going through constant trials and tribulations.
This is good because it makes us dependent upon Jehovah which draws us ever closer unto Him.
As well, it strengthens our Christian walk.
It is also good because when we encounter hurting folks we can share with them the amazing things Jehovah has done through our tough times.
The other benefit is that we will not desire for this world but rather for the home in which our Heavenly Father has prepared for us.
“The Lord gets his best soldiers out of the highlands of affliction.” — Charles H. Spurgeon
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to make through the tough times and for using those tough times to strengthen Your loving child and well as the life changing lessons learned through these fiery times. I exalt You in the name of He who suffered the worst affliction for me Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.
