Strength in the Suffering


Feeling like you are in the midst of something you cannot overcome right now? Are you in the midst of trials and suffering? God’s word brings good news to those who are “walking through the fire.”

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of Grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. 1 Peter 5:10

God is walking beside you. He has your hand in his. He will not lead you to a place of darkness, but a place of light. Keep your eyes focused on the PRIZE not the PROBLEM. In Christ’s strength, you will come out of your situation stronger, wiser, and closer to the King. Rejoice in your situation because God is using it to teach you. James 1:2-4 reminds us to count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

And when you feel like you can’t stand another minute, when you are tempted to give up, remember what God tells us in 1 Corinthians 10:13…No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you GE tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
