All Things Are for His Glory

When Job questioned God about his suffering, stating how calamity is for the unrighteous, he was really saying that he was righteous and did not deserve what God had allowed upon his life. God had a plan, though. He was there with Job through the trials he endured. For through those trials God was showing his glory.

“Have you entered into the springs of the sea,
or walked in the recesses of the deep?
Have the gates of death been revealed to you,
or have you seen the gates of deep darkness?
Have you comprehended the expanse of the earth?
Declare, if you know all this.”

(Job 38:16-18)

There are moments in our lives when we believe God may have abandoned us. They are only moments; for in everything we suffer, God is showing His glory. Our true test as Christians is our faith we have in the Almighty. Will we abandon God if we did not receive the answer we wanted? The answer is God would never abandon us.

Through His Son, Jesus, we have salvation. God had allowed Jesus to suffer the cross as a way for us to understand God’s awesome grace. For through the cross, we also have hope of the resurrection. We will one day live again, and the devil cannot take that hope away from us.

Look to God for salvation and He will give it. Our sufferings are only for a moment, and then God will glorify us just as He did Jesus. Bless the Lord, for all things are for His glory.

  1. My greatest times of spiritual growth have been during hard times and suffering. When He brings us through difficulties is when we begin to see that He is real, He loves us, and He is greater than our circumstances.

    1. James said that we ought to count it all joy when we suffer trials, for God is there through all of it, and we will lack nothing. Yes, Michael, He truly does love us more than anything else in this world. Blessings!

  2. Excellent truth that God will never abandon us and has a plan for us! In the end we will win more than we will ever deserve. Thank you for sharing this great truth.

  3. A very beautiful messagge! Nowadays it’s difficult to find someone who talks about God. But we believe in a powerful God, and He’s always by our side to help us, even in the darkest moments. He has got a wonderful plan and he makes a wound, but He’s the one who can swaddle it.
