REPROACH

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Hebrews 11:24-29

By faith Moses…esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

Hebrews 11:24-26

Moses knew the value of the reproach that he was experiencing. It would work out in him a greater blessing than all the riches of Egypt.

Paul knew the value of the trials, reproaches and distressing situations he was experiencing in this life. He could see through it and beyond it. He knew that there was a great blessing hidden in the very thing that people despised him for.

And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly , therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may dwell in me.” “Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Corinthians 12:10, NASB).

Unfortunately , those whose minds do not have the latitude to comprehend the good that will come out of certain things are continually discontent and fail to receive God’s blessings through the humble things of their lives. They go out chasing fantasies and things that will not profit them. Instead of being content with what God has given them, they are constantly out and about following things which yield very little fruit.
