In the life of faith, we will face many difficulties. For Job, there was great suffering. For Jesus' disciples, there was the pain of loss when Jesus was taken from them. For all of God's people, there is something better still to come: "You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand" (Psalm 16:11). We must not look only at the things that are happening now. We must look also at the glory which is yet to come.
