Through God's Power

Description

Ed Young Sr shows us, through the lessons of Paul, how we can be excited in tribulations.

"And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope…" -Romans 5:3-4
 

“Exult” means being “excited.” How can we be excited in tribulations? Paul is no masochist, relishing pain. But he sees where tribulation leads. His eyes are stretched out to God’s view of things, not the human perspective. For the person whose life belongs to God, there are no dead ends. Every road leads somewhere, even the rocky, dangerous, narrow paths. Paul has learned in his engagement with God that tribulation leads to staying power and staying power proves the quality of one’s character; and that sparks hope that one will be able to meet successfully every challenge through God’s power.
