There WILL BE glory after this. After what? Whatever you are facing right now.
After the pain -
After the brokenness -
After the divorce -
After the sickness -
After the embarrassment and the humiliation -
After the bankruptcy -
After the ______________________ (fill in the blank) -
It may not look like it. It may not feel like it. It may not seem like it. But, there will be glory after this. There will be victory after this. The WORD promises that we walk by faith and not by sight. Hang on in there. Stand your ground - even in the middle of the battle that you are in. For, the battle does not go to the swift, nor to the strong. But, it goes to the one that endures unto the end.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
