2 Cor 7:4

"I am exceedingly joyful in all our tribulations" (2 Corinthians 7:4)

"In all these things we are more than conqueror through Him who loved us" (Romans 8:37)

Looking at the cross, picturing our Lord sacrificing himself for us. How He must love us and through this love we are conquerors. What else do we need? In our tribulations (our difficulties, our suffering), we need only whisper His name, divert  our thoughts then focus it on His name. This will prod our mind to picture Him on the cross, to picture the great love. And we can conquer. We can train our minds to do this. Practice it every moment.

We are joyful IN our tribulations NOT in spite of our tribulations. Thank God for tribulations! Its a chance to lean  on Him, walk with Him,  focus on Him. And in it there is joy.

Let us be less and let Him be more. Let us be under the sway of the Holy Spirit more and more each day.
