God describes spiritual strength in terms of endurance and tenacity; thriving under extreme difficulties with all confidence and joy. (Col 1:11)
The more we align with God, the more we’re equipped to live according to our design: to enjoy Him as He is for Who He is, regardless of our circumstances. In fact, the more trying our lives become, the more opportunity we have to glorify Him, enjoying Him in the perfect gift of every moment, finding all our satisfaction and contentment in Him.
Trials then become treasures (Ro 5:3-5), precious opportunities to show God and others how delightful and amazing He is to us (1Pe 1:7), and also to further strengthen us, perfecting us such that we fall behind in no other virtue. (Ja 1:2)
In keeping our eyes on the Eternal One, our light affliction works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory (2Co 4:17); we walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God. (Col 1:10)
