God will often use people and circumstances that arise against you, negative situations – to bring authentic progress in your life. Paul said it in 2 Corinthians 4:17 ‘for our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
What this means is that all our afflictions or problems in life, no matter how horrible they seem, are not a big deal COMPARED to the payoff for facing and enduring them.
Someone once reminded me that ‘you will never be an exceptional person if you fight only ordinary battles’
In the sports arena, we know that ‘If you want to be No.1, you can’t just beat No.9′
For the next couple of weeks, I want to look at what God has to say regarding ‘being more than conquerors’ through Christ Jesus. Hope you will either join us Sunday morning, or at least tune in to my audio message to study together this tremendous truth.
