Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
Note 18 at Eph 3:13: Paul was taking full advantage of his access to the Father (Eph 3:12). He was so blessed in the presence of God that he could tell the Ephesians not to be bothered about his imprisonment; he wasn't.
If we fully appropriate what is ours in Christ, no problem here on earth can overcome us. As Ps 139:8 says, "If I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there." No problem here is worthy to be compared to the glory of God by which we now "have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him" (Eph 3:12; see note 1 at Ac 7:55, note 17 at 2Co 4:16, notes 18-19 at 2Co 4:17, and note 20 at 2Co 4:18).
