“But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God,” Acts 7:55 NKJV
Stephen was about to be stoned. His life was threatened. What a great trial he was undergoing! What did he see when he was undergoing this trial? Stephen saw The glory of God and Jesus at His right hand. He was filled with the Holy Spirit.
How blessed it is when we are able to see the presence of God with us in the midst of our trial, toil and pain. How wonderful it must be when we are able to see beyond our trial and sense the very hand of God working things out for our good. How blessed it was for Stephen. May God bless us similarly.
