THE TRIBULATION OF YOUR MAN OF GOD IS FOR YOUR GLORY!
Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
Paul gives a very profound revelation in the scripture above. The tribulations that Paul was suffering through, were only tribulations according to him and his experience. When he was receiving threats or being hurt he considered that to be a trying time. But he is revealing that at some point conversion should take place; of his suffering, into their glory. The only condition was that they FAINT NOT! Paul is trying to help you to understand that what you see happening, to the man that you believe in is for your glory. The more they are persecuted, the more you increase and improve in life; you will become better! But remember, Paul, says that his prayer is that they do not faint before his tribulation is converted into their glory. You need to exercise the highest form of patience while you eagerly await the glory that follows the suffering. Do not faint child of God. Your Glory is coming!
