“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” 2Corinthians 4:17 NKJV

What is your suffering? Are you sick? Do you feel as if you are drowning from different troubles in life? Are the people you expect the most to stay beside you deserted you? Are you at the lowest point in your life? There is nothing permanent in this world except change. Whatever you are going through will come to pass. You may say, how long will I suffer? How can I carry on? The afflictions of the righteous are just for a while as the Apostle Paul tells us. Things will change, things will get better. The evildoer has afflictions too. But their sufferings will run after them until they are plunged and destroyed by their sins. Jesus prayed, “Don’t make me suffer by having me drink from this cup. But do what you want, and not what I want.” He humbled himself and became obedient to death – a terrifying death on the cross! And then He was glorified and received in heavens of heavens. Likewise, as servants of Christ, all of us shall reflect the glory of the Lord. The same glory which comes from Him will also transform us into His likeness in an ever greater degree of glory. We can never compare this glory that we long to receive with the glory from this world. With all conviction we can say, “Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.”

MP Hiel
