Suffering

Jesus suffered horribly at the hands of His own people. For us to expect life to be without struggle would not be realistic.

My (our) great hope is that God is our rescuer. He builds us up making us strong and steady. The ultimate destination for anyone who places their trust in Him is glory.

It’s the “placing trust” that we find difficult in the midst of pain. Even so, believe in Him who loves you with an unfailing love.

1 Peter 5:10 God always gives you all the grace you need. So you will only have to suffer for a little while. Then God himself will build you up again. He will make you strong and steady. And he has chosen you to share in his eternal glory because you belong to Christ.
