Hope in Suffering

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time….For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

Romans 8:18, 22, 24-25 NIV

It has been said that the most intense labor pains from pregnancy are often forgotten with the successful birth of a child and hope for the future of that child replaces the pain with joy. Most mothers can relate to this phenomenon. In the same way, it can be difficult for us to comprehend that the suffering in the world today will be overshadowed with gladness when Jesus returns. Yet, we do hope to feel better in the midst of our pains. In His Word, God promises to fulfill our ultimate hope for all He has revealed to us. We are saved for this purposenot just for feeling better about what we may be experiencing now, even as God helps us to endure this time. As we put our trust in Christ, we can hope for a future we have never seen in which God has declared there will be no more tears, pain or death. Just wait!

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.Revelation 21:4 NIV
