DAY 26 SUNDAY: APRIL 2020

YOUR LIGHT AFFLICTION IS FOR A MOMENT!

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory (2 Corinthians 4:17).

Persecutions, challenges and trials in life do not last forever because they are light afflictions which are but for a moment in life. Therefore, a Christian should learn to look up to God no matter the challenges of life. The Bible says in the opening text that our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that his light affliction is but for a moment in life. The challenges and trials that a Christian goes through are indeed light afflictions that bring eternal weight of glory in life. A Christian should take note of the fact that God is always with him in life forever.

Problems and challenges of life are inevitable for a Christian as long as he is alive. Jesus Christ and His apostles experienced it; they overcame it through constant focused on the Word of life and absolute trust in God. That is why the Bible says in 2 Timothy 3:12, “Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecutions.” Therefore, hard times and difficulties do not last forever but toughed people do in life. God wants you to exercise faith in His Word of life. Whenever a Christian exercises his faith in God, his light affliction which is for a moment opens doors for his weight of eternal glory in life. Indeed, every Christian should take note of the fact that no matter the heat of afflictions, they indeed have no powers to destroy him because of the grace of God in his life forever.

As a Christian, whatever challenges, trials and afflictions you are passing through in life, God is aware and He has promised to be with you in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Isaiah 43:2, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.” In fact, God is more than able to see through and deliver a Christian from the heat of afflictions in life. Indeed, the heat of afflictions no matter the intensity can never destroy the life of a Christian because his God is far bigger and greater than all the afflictions put together in life. When God is with you as a Christian, then, you are more than a conqueror in life forever (Romans 8:37).

Daily Tip: Your affliction in life today will not last forever; it only has a short life’s span to expire. Therefore, learn to put your trust in God in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31).
