Glory in Tribulation

By God's Gift

“And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; Romans 5;3

Apostle Paul in his walk with Christ Jesus went through several tribulations. He saw God’s hand in the tribulations to teach him some spiritual truth. He learned of the spiritual truth and is in the best position to enlighten us about what he had learned. He learned that tribulation or challenges yield patience, and patience produces experience, and experience generates hope. Hence, Apostle Paul is of the view that we should not totally condemn tribulation or challenges but rather be on the alert to learn patience, experience, and hope. In the end, the Holy Spirit comes to our aid to end the tribulation, fulfilling our hope because He loves us and His love is at work in our heart. Dear beloved, are you going through any challenge or tribulation?

What should be your disposition?
