2 Corinthians 11:30

King James Version (KJV)

30 If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.

As I listen to people talk, I hear people glorifying their problem and what has happened to them instead of glorifying God. As Paul the Apostle said in this scripture that if he is going to glory, he will glory in the things that concern his infirmities. This means that he was not going to glorify the problem. Paul was often at death’s door. He was in prison many times. Yet he did not find it great to talk about his prison time or all the problems that came with it. Paul constantly talked about the goodness of God and the church. What I want you to know is too many times we glorify the problem instead of the great things that God has done. God did not bring these infirmities on Paul. People will be people. It is people who have come after Paul and caused some big problems. Yet in midst of dealing with nasty people and the problems they have caused, Paul glorified God.

The lesson here is what you give place to or glorify will determine who you love the most. Some people glorify sickness and the author of sickness. Some glorify their troubles more than they glorify the King of Kings. Testify about God’s goodness and faithfulness and watch your situation turn around. Paul’s situations constantly turned around. He knew that God would not forsake him. He knew God loved him.

God loves you and desires for you to glorify Him and not your problem. It is easy to talk about and even comfort your problems and infirmities. Talking about God’s goodness and faithfulness is easier. It’s better! Don’t give your infirmity higher praise. Don’t glorify your problem. Give God your praise! Give God all the Glory. Testify of His goodness. Testify of His faithfulness that got you through the problem or whatever you have gone through or are going through. Praise the King of Kings! Give Glory to the Lord of Lords!
