1 Peter 5:10 NKJV — But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.
For the follower of Christ there will be suffering.
If Jesus Christ was persecuted, we too will be.
But just as the Lord knows what is best and how to use what the enemy means for evil to our benefit, we can cling to the truth that Jesus will settle us.
He will use the tribulations of this fallen world to perfect our faith, establish His truth, and strengthen our hearts in Him.
He will guide, direct, teach, exhort, and hone those who remain diligent in following Him.
And some day, He will settle us in our home.
John 14:2-4NKJV — “In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
Be encouraged follower!
Romans 8:38-39 NKJV — For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your promises. Thank You for salvation. Lord, truly, there is no greater joy than to know one’s soul is safe with You. Lord, so many things in this life are temporary, thank You that You never change, Your Word is always true, and Your gift of salvation is all we need. Lord, please continue to teach us, to help us to be willing to walk through any circumstance knowing You will use it for our good. Lord, please help us to be loving, gentle, kind, compassionate, and faithful. Slow to speak and able to discern the truth, wise and meek. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.
