His Glory In You

Awesome Colorado Rocks

We so often can’t see the forest for the trees! We get stuck in only seeing the difficulties and hardships we face, and sometimes it’s hard to see beyond those to the fulfillment of God’s promises in our life. Paul understood that and gives us encouragement when we’re in that place. Romans 8:18 NIV says, “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” Our present sufferings include daily hardships, pain, affliction, and even emotion and influences. All of these can distort the reality of God’s Word, His promises, and the work of Jesus in us. Paul stresses that even as hard as these times may seem, we’re not to remain there. Those times he says are not even suitable to compare to God’s glory that will be—is—revealed in us. God’s glory in part is His reputation. God’s glory through all that Jesus provides us is revealing God’s reputation of love, favor, grace, goodness. Let His reputation and faithfulness of goodness, love, and deliverance lift you out of troubling times.
