Romans 8:18-19
18 Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. 19 For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are.


8:18 The ultimate glory that Christians will receive is so stupendous that the sufferings of this present time are insignificant in comparison (cf. 2 Cor. 4:17). They look forward both to the resurrection of the body (1 Thess. 4:13–18) and to the new heaven and new earth (Rev. 21:1–22:5; see Isa. 65:17).
8:19 Creation is personified in this verse and the following verses in order to emphasize the wonder of the future glory of God’s sons (i.e., believers who have the rights of inheritance of all that God has in store for them).


  • The bottom line is, your IDEAL just doesn't compare to God's REAL. If our lives are all about what we want, how we want it, when we want it we will never be satisfied. We will live shallow, empty lives. God's real is always ideal. Are there some areas of your life you've chosen your way or what you think is best over God's best? Is there anything you haven't fully surrendered to him?

  • Yes, we experience gaps when it comes to what we expect and what we experience. But, at the end of the day, we MUST CHOOSE to trust God and his sovereign plan. And one day, all will be made right. Jesus is alive and returning, and his glory is coming! If you don't see the glory yet, God's not done yet! Is there an area of your life where you've started to loose a little hope? What is God speaking to you about that? 

Prayer Topics:

  • That you would always choose surrender to Jesus.
  • That you would trust God's plan, even when it doesn't make sense.
