“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”* This powerful verse in Romans chapter 8 has been an anchor of my faith for some time now. Lately the Lord has been reminding me that with Him the blessings are bigger than our suffering. What is to come is so good and so excellent that it can’t compare to the hard times we are going through at the moment. Today I want to use that message and encourage you. I want to let you know that your blessings are going to be so amazing that they won’t compare with your current pain and your current circumstances. God has something very powerful for you and it will come in time. Trust Him and you will see His glory. Trust Him and you will see what Jesus does for you. He is going to do something that will leave you in awe and that will touch your body, mind, soul and spirit. It is going to feel like time was suspended and you were in a parallel universe. That is how grandiose it is going to be. God can do all things and He specializes in the impossible. You might be going through the toughest time of your life today and I am very sorry to hear that. However, I am also hearing that you have a God who is faithful and nothing is too big for Him.
There are blessings in the pipeline with a delivery date on them. You don’t have to know when they are coming. All you have to know is that they will come. You see, faith knows. Faith knows that God will bless you and that He is true to His Word. Faith doesn’t always have a timestamp to put on what’s to come but it believes that there was a stamp put on your blessing and it is in the heavenly mail. The mailman of the Lord is on his way and the blessing will be dropped most likely when you least expect it. Expect good things. Expect God things like I enjoy saying. The devil has many things for you to make you stumble but the God things are better and they will restore your life. The enemy will always be after you but Jesus will always be with you. He goes before you and He makes a way for beautiful things to happen. God has blessings for you. Don’t let your current suffering erase the visions that your faith is trying to show you. Focus on Jesus. The blessings will come and the suffering will end.
The blessing will always be bigger than the battle. We all have battles and they can be excruciating. God has fought all our battles. We should stand in faith until the victory is a reality in our world. It is already real but we need to let it come to pass in the natural with hope in Jesus and confidence that He has already won. The battle that is taking place in your life right now is no fun and no one can argue against that. It can keep you up at night and it can deprive you of strength and appetite. You have a God of restoration. What He is going to give you is going to be a thousand times better than the battle. Those feelings of fear and defeat are going to be replaced by hope, joy, peace and victory. Something very good is coming your way. Rejoice today. Get into thanking mode. Let faith guide you and stare at the victory and the freedom that is available to you in the Lord. Stay encouraged, dear friend. Things are not easy now but they are going to get a lot better and God will have the final say. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
