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. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 5:10-11
There are wonderful promises in these verses. It won’t be long now. Our minor suffering here on Earth is nothing really compared to the blessing that awaits us. Of course we can’t see that blessing, but we can trust the One who promised it. We don’t know what that blessing entails but it will be conversely different than the suffering we experience. How do I know that? Well, throughout the Bible, God talks quite about about the heavenly kingdom. It’s no secret for the Believer, but it does take a little bit of trust.
Be encouraged, fellow Believer, our redemption is nearer now than it ever has been.
