Romans 8:18 (KJV); For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
The Christian life is full of trials. In Psalm 34:19, the Bible says that many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
The good news is that any pain and suffering we may endure as children of God comes with glory.
Here is a vital lesson: some people suffer without glory and assume that this is godly, that is demonic affliction. You must be able to tell the difference.
If God allows you to face a particular circumstance, He intends that it ends with glory–your elevation, strengthening, or progress. These situations make you a greater blessing to those around you.
However, some circumstances are not capable of adding to you in any way because they are hatched from the depths of hell and it is not God’s intention that you endure them. It is upon you to rebuke these, address the enemy and fix the situation.
The Bible speaks of fires in which God is not (1 Kings 19:12). You should be able to tell that God is not in a particular fire.
If God is in a fire, that fire cannot consume you. If He is with you in the waters, they cannot drown you (Isaiah 43:2). The end will always be glorious.
Know what is for you to endure and what is for you to fix.

GOLDEN NUGGET: If God is in a fire, that fire cannot consume you. If He is with you in the waters, they cannot drown you (Isaiah 43:2). The end will always be glorious.
PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for the strength that You have built inside me. Daily, I see You fortify my spirit. I thank You for the wisdom to see demonic affliction for what it is and to deal with it according to Your will, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
