Weight of Glory!


Joseph Saddler (bka) Grandmaster Flash said, “It’s like a jungle sometimes, it makes me wander how to keep from going under.” Jesus warned us that we would experience trouble but He also encouraged us to take heart because He has conquered the world. Beloved brothers and sisters, God is not blind to your struggles, but He allows His character to mature in you. He wants you strong and mighty with your confidence resting only in Him. Look at this way, if an athlete never exercised their physical body, they would not be able to endure the competition. God allows difficulties in your life to develop your spirit so that you may run the race with perseverance, Godly character and an everlasting hope. (Romans 5:3-4) So keep your eyes on the prize and press on toward the goal. You are surrounded by a cloud of witnesses cheering you into heaven! 2 Cor 4:17 also reminds us, “For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!”
