It’s easy for the Church at present to forebode the portending difficulties ahead. But, as the saints of God, we were not built to forebode, to fret, to whine, or to grumble. We were built to rejoice. But, to rejoice as we were intended by God to rejoice, we need to swap out our perspective — change out of our earthly glasses for a pair of heavenly ones. When we view things through God’s perspective, even the darkest trials become glorious opportunities for the glory of God to shine forth.
