1 Peter 5:10 – And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
I love this promise. When you’re suffering, regardless of what form of suffering it may be, a promise sparks a little flame of hope to help you endure.
Whatever you’re going through, God knows about it. He has compassion on you. And just know that He wouldn’t allow the suffering to occur if He didn’t have a greater intention behind it. The suffering you’re experiencing right now is shaping something greater than you can ever imagine.
God has plans to restore you – every tear that you’ve cried and all the time that you feel has been lost. God plans for restoration. He is going to make you stronger than you think. He will make you firm and steadfast. So hold onto His love and His promise.
