Glory is just around the corner
1 Peter 4:12-13 (MSG)
Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job. Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner.
Has God forgotten us?…This is a common misconception when we are going through difficult circumstances in our life.
“Where is God? Why is this happening to me?” We naturally ask these questions because our human mind cannot understand how God can be in control of such difficulties and hardships.
However, it may be just a spiritual refining process we are going through. When things get tough in our life, financially, relationally or emotionally we can rest in the knowledge that not only is God in control but He is working out something greater than what we can comprehend.
Are you experiencing calamity and testing ordeals in your life? Have you been struggling to understand why God would allow this?
Don’t despair because maybe God is doing a work in you to accelerate you forward, to bring you to a place of spiritual maturity and victory.
So rejoice and be glad because for you, glory is just around the corner!
