Romans 8:18–27 NIV
18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God. 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. 26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

1. Suffering is not the end of our story

God is still God
You are still His son/daughter
He has a plan
His plan is good
We must learn to rejoice in the midst of our suffering

2. Glory will be revealed

God cares for you
The Psalmist wrote, “What is man that you are mindful of them....made them a little lower than the have crowned them with honor and glory.”
You are more important than dry ground
If God waters the ground, how much more will He do for you
The farmer sows in faith
We preach in Faith, God causes the growth

3. The Holy Spirit will help you in time of trouble

He is our counselor
He is our guide
The Holy Spirit helps you pray when you do not know how to pray
The Holy Spirit intercedes for you according to the will of God
The Holy Spirit assures believers that God loves us

4. Assurance in our adoption as God’s children

We have access to God
We are His children
Trouble cannot keep us from God
God really loves us
I have been forgiven
This trouble will pass
I’m still His

5. Our Hope is sure

It may not look like it but I am still His
Just cause I can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not for me
God has a good plan for me
My hope is in Him
I’m Still His
