2 Timothy 2:12-13 (KJV) If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
In Philippians 3:10, Apostle Paul said: “that I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His suffering…” There is a depth of knowledge of God that is accessed when we have gone through ‘stuff’ because of our faith in Christ.
I believe one reason why saints who overcome(see Revelation 3:21) have the destiny to sit on the throne of Christ with Him [and reign over all God’s creation with Him] is that our fragile lives here on earth give us certain privileges to know God in ways that even angels might not be able to know Him. We have the privilege of being able to say “I suffered with Him”.
You know that when you have a faithful friend you suffered with when things were tough, such a friend would have a special place in your heart, much more than the new friends you made when things became easy and abundant.
Go into today remembering that if you truly want to live for Christ and refuse to compromise your faith in this corrupt world, it will fight back. When the world fights back and you pass through unpleasantness that you normally wouldn’t have faced if you were an unbeliever, that suffering you passed through because of your faith counts in heaven.
Prayer: Lord, help me know you more and walk more in your power. Amen.
