My Daily Devotional

Growing Stronger

“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”
Romans 8:18

I just received an e-mail from one of my readers who had been suffering from severe pain in her stomach, and was just told by her physician that her disease was incurable, and wanted me to pray for her. She is only 38 years old, and has two small children. When I hear of situations such as this, it is hard to see why God allows things like this to happen. I know that it was always hard for me to understand why my dad was allowed to die in World War II, when I was only two years old. But I now know that through scriptures such as the above, that our present sufferings don’t compare to God’s glory that will be revealed. There are not many people who like to have problems and struggles in life, but we are told that we will have them. Trials and struggles make us stronger, if we have Jesus by our side, although many times we don’t realize it. When we begin an exercise program, and begin to run, most of us will reach a point where we feel we cannot take another step. We feel weak, exhausted and ready to give up. Although we feel weak and exhausted, we are actually becoming stronger, as the next time we run we will be able to run just a little farther, than we did the last time, as we have gotten just a little stronger. When we have God with us, and face our daily struggles, although we may feel weak in dealing with them, when we have God by our side we will have a sense of hope and trust. God can use our problems to make us stronger, when we put our complete trust and faith in Him, and can use this for something greater as His plan is revealed. If you are feeling weak and feel that you cannot go on, this may be where God wanted you to be, as this may be His way of telling you that you cannot face these battles alone. By asking Jesus into your heart, he can make you stronger and when troubles come, you will have someone to lean on.
