A dreadful situation can be the perfect platform for God to receive glory. As painful as some trials feel, God’s children can know that we will never be abandoned by Him. He is in the business of making His name great and will use everything for our good, wanting the world to see and know who He is.
“God, who has called you into fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.” (1 Corinthians 1:9)
He is faithful. This lessens the blow of our sufferings. If someone else accepts Jesus through the circumstance(s) we find ourselves in, to God be the glory!
“We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.” (2 Corinthians 4:8-10)
If Jesus is your Lord, the next time you find yourself suffering, just remember…
“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.” (2 Corinthians 4:17)
