Devotional Tea 48: No Pain, No Gain.

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 (KJV):

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. 


Many men owe the grandeur of their lives to their tremendous difficulties. ― Charles Haddon Spurgeon. 

Nothing in life comes on a platter of gold. It is time to wake up to reality. Enough of the name it, claim it. It is time to get your hands dirty. It does not matter whether it be spiritual, psychological, or physical. The same law works in all realms of life. There is a price to pay for every good thing, greatness, or new height in life. Are you willing to pay the price? How valuable is that which you seek? Is it worth the price?

The best, lasting and sustainable things of life NEVER come in a hurry. They are found on the small gate and narrow way. You cannot just wish, or claim your way into glory. Life is going to ask you questions. You'll have to overcome the trials along the way. You'll have to make the right decisions along the way. You'll have to show just how much you truly want it. God wants to give it to you. The question is how much do you really want it?

Prayer: Lord, lead me into every temptation destined for my life, but deliver me from evil. May my temptation not overcome me, but may I overcome and gain the strength it brings.
