“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Romans 8:18

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

What we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory He will reveal to us later.

– Romans 8:18

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Take heart

…we shall be included in the radiance of the coming glory

which will put in the shadow all our present sufferings

.

No sooner are we called to our Maker,

that our souls will be freed from evil and unbelief,

from doubts and fears,

and from everything that is distressing.

.

This present time is but a short time

– a little while, and all sufferings will be at an end;

they can never be compared to the glory He will reveal to us later.

.

Christ has promised His saints eternal glory!

.

[today’s reflection inspired by John Gill’s Exposition of the Bible.]

QUOTE…

.

"Who is there then, who will not strive to attain so great a glory,

by making himself God’s friend, to rejoice immediately with Christ,

to receive the divine rewards after the pains and sufferings of this life?”

.

– St. Cyprian

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Father, in Heaven, All-loving Creator, My Rock,

I thank You for always being here, right by my side.

– You are my great consolation!

.

Sometimes, Lord, I am close to giving up,

but then I read Your Word

– It is Your voice –

and I look at You

and know that You hear my plea;

I know that You care

…and you make my burden lighter.

.

Lord, console and strengthen me

and help me overcome the difficulties of this life

that I may look forward with joy to Your promise.

.

Amen.

.
