I am going to wager when you first gave your life to Jesus the first thing you heard wasn’t, “Great! Get ready for tribulations that Jesus has promised!” It isn’t the most appealing thing to anyone, but for us as Christians it really should be.
A tribulation is a cause of trouble or suffering, yet Paul says that we should glory or boast. That would be completely crazy if we did not have the follow up knowing what these tribulations produce in us. What tribulations has the Lord placed before you that you get to glory in today?
Resting in Him,
