Spiritual Warfare: 'Living with Jesus Requires that We Suffer'

God's Power for Our Battles — Monday, December 2, 2019

The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him. I believe that the present suffering is nothing compared to the coming glory that is going to be revealed to us.
— Romans 8:16-18 CEB

Today's Prayer

Lord, some—even some CHRISTIAN LEADERS—have taught that we will only become Christians, then nothing bad will happen to us; we will never suffer. Forgive me for even considering this as possible in light of the Scriptures. Remind me that when I suffer I am connecting to Jesus in a spiritual way that confirms I am Your heir; a co-heir with Jesus Christ. Thank You for accepting me into the family. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
