"But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are
partakers of Christ's sufferings"
(1 Peter 4:13)
A.W. Tozer says, "The obedient Christian believer will continue to rejoice and praise God even in the midst of continuing trials and suffering in this earthly life!"
As God's people, as His children, we ought to adopt this same philosophy as ours. We know that things here on earth are not as God intended them to be. We know that things here on earth are vile and wicked. But, let's not be too busy wallowing in our sufferings to take time to rejoice in the gracious prospect of all that will take place when God fulfills His promises to His Redeemed children!
Our prayer should be not just to cope with the testings in life but to rise above them!
Let's bring to life the words of Peter - "When Christ's glory shall be revealed, you may be glad with exceeding joy!"
