Quoting Eldredge from Waking the Dead (p 72):
You probably can’t imagine there being a glory to your life, let alone one that the Enemy fears. But remember — things are not what they seem. We are not what we seem. You probably believed that your heart was bad too. I pray that fog of poison gas from the pit of hell is fading away in the wind of God’s truth. And there is more. Not only does Christ say to you that your heart is good, he invites you now out of the shadows to unveil your glory. You have a role you never dreamed of having.
Eldredge then gives a couple of great examples of how God gave men glory. Joseph, through tragedy, so much more glory that he could have ever dreamed or imagined by mid-life. Then he shows how the Lord scraped the Apostle Peter off the floor after his great denial. Pete saw many people come into the Kingdom and lead the charge of the Way, the new church just as Christ left the earth.
Do you see God giving you glory and using you in a similar way?
