For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. — Romans 8:18
Would that be a heavenly perspective? When I consider the sufferings of this world compared to being in the presence of God Almighty, it pales a little. When I consider that the suffering of this world only lasts a blink compared to eternity of being in the glory of God, I strive to endure.
The sufferings of this life are only temporary for those who know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord. Life here and now is incomparable with the glory that is to be revealed to the children of God.
Are you suffering without hope? Is there no light at the end of your tunnel? Turn to Jesus who is the Light of the world and let Him give you a heavenly perspective as you seek Him.
For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. — 2 Peter 1:4
God’s promises come with a promise. God is so awesome! By His precious and magnificent promises we may become partakers of the divine nature. The likeness of God created in righteousness and holiness of the truth is in the new self we put on with the trusting acceptance of Jesus as Lord and Savior in our lives. We share His holiness. Isn’t that reason enough to trust in His promises? We are blessed beyond comprehension by the mercy and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. It’s time to trust in those promises of God. His promises.
Let our trusting faith in His promises help us to grow in our faith until the day He calls us home. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. — 1 John 3:2
What a glorious day that will be. In the meantime seek the Lord and His strength while He can be found.
Continually seeking Him,
and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. — Ephesians 4:24
For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness. — Hebrews 12:10
