God promises His grace to bring us 4 things after suffering and we should take comfort in THESE.
- Be restored – receiving more in every aspect of your life esp the things you felt was lost during suffering
- Be confirmed – knowing more than ever who you are in Christ and being confident in Him who was with you.
- Be strengthened – being sure that His strength is made perfect through our weaknesses (trials and sufferings) and gaining supernatural confidence that you can do all things through Christ.
- Be established – firmly rooted and grounded in the Lord and Saviour and becoming more like Him daily.
In 1 Peter 5:8 , the Word of God tell us to be sober (self-controlled) and vigilant ( watchful) because the devil is looking for someone to overtake. In verse 9 it states for us to be steadfast in our faith while resisting the devil because the same sufferings we have, so do our brothers and sisters in Christ. This lets us know we are not alone and we will suffer just resisting attacks! But greater is He that is in us!
Prayer is key during these moments. Go straight to God through our advocate, Jesus Christ. Allow the Holy Spirit to comfort and guide you, so you can overcome. It’s not about getting through, but learning while you are going through
Whatever you are going through , Be still and know that He is God and has it all under control. Be encouraged, it’s only for a moment….
