Thursday’s Ministry Moment

Christian Suffering
Romans 8:18

Dr. Jonathan T. Phillips, Jr.

As Christian believers we will experience our share of suffering.  In the lesson text Paul encourages us.
Whatever we are facing right now is nothing compared to what we will have on the other side.

Why do we suffer? The sovereignty of God is still sustainable in all situations. God will be God in all things. Our situations do not change Him. He knows and is aware of all circumstances/situations.
1. He “allows” it – to bring out the best
2. He “arranges” it – to develop us
3. He “aligns” it – to keep us from going backward
4. He “develops” us and not “disable” us.
5. He “disciplines” us
6. He “directs” us so glory can be revealed!

God will not allow you to lose. Don’t be attached to your gloom!
Glory is attached to you. You shall receive the crown of life. He has a prepared place for prepared people>

The situation you are in is not your destiny. It has an expiration date, so it will not last. You must go through it so glory can be revealed.

Keep Focus!
Don’t let the devil win!
You will be victorious!
God is in control!
