Job was my daily Bible reading today and I am almost sure that part of God’s favor is hardship. God was so proud of Job when He showed him to Satan. It is easy for us to boast in the Lord when things are going just the way we want but what happens when aren’t? It means so much when we praise Him out of our difficulty.
Romans 8:17-18 “Now if we are children, then we are heirs – heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”
Jesus came to Earth for one reason, to give his life as a ransom for many. What makes us think we are to do any less?
P.S. Please pray for me, I have been asked to write some devotionals for pastors wives and I am scared and just don’t where to start or how to start or what to even say. Who am I to write a devotional for anyone, I can’t really even spell??
