As believers, we have to face afflictions. Sometimes these afflictions can seem so great and unbearable. Sometimes it seems that we just want to give up, or either that it isn’t fair for us to have to face these many afflictions.
Hopefully I’m not the only who has times of weakness where I question the afflictions that I have to go through.
Sometimes we see the afflictions and we feel like we are looking up at Mount Everest. But the truth is these things that afflict us in this life are only momentary, but the glory of Christ awaiting us is eternal
A.W. Pink said it well.
Afflictions are light when compared with what we really deserve. They are light when compared with the sufferings of the Lord Jesus. But perhaps their real lightness is best seen by comparing them with the weight of glory which is awaiting us.
When the struggles of life start weighing you down, remember the wonders of our Father’s Glory that awaits us in Christ. May you find strength in this remembrance.
