Glory of God in the Forefront
Let’s get down to some ground–level grit. It is God that brings (leads, influences, carries, persuades) sons to glory. The sons’ part is to overcome through the process of getting there. Opposition is anything that contradicts the Word, will or character of God in our lives. In John 14:30, Jesus pointed out one major source of opposition was “the ruler of this world.” Your adversary, the devil, will oppose you continually. Though the glory of God may have never been in the forefront of your thinking before now, it has been number one priority with the devil all along. He is afraid you will do what you were born to do.
