Philippians 3:10-11; "I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death, so that one way or another I will experience the resurrection from the dead!"(NLT)
To be like Christ, we will share in his sufferings, in other for us to share in his glory. No matter what we are going through, it is for our good. Bible says, "Instead, be very glad for these trials make you partners with Christ in his suffering, so that you will have the wonderful joy of seeing his glory when it is revealed to all the world."(1 Peter 4:13)
Therefore, we will count it all joy when we fall into divers temptations, knowing that it is working out righteousness in us, through Christ.
It is very uncomfortable to experience trouble and hardship. No trial or discipline is enjoyable while it is happening, it's painful! But afterward, there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.
Because he lives, we are going to be raised and glorified with him. Our troubles are temporary, after a while our troubles will also die and a new glorious life will be raised or revealed in us. This is the heritage of those in Christ Jesus.
Heavenly Father, I thank you for sending Jesus to die for me. I have victory over death because I have the life of God in me. I declare that even as Christ is resurrected from the dead, so am I resurrecting with him concerning my Job, family, business, marriage and finances. Amen!
