How to have God’s peace and joy in suffering

August 19, 2019 Save Article

BIBLE MEDITATION:

For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps. 1 Peter 2:21

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

Christ suffered for you.

But I don’t want to suffer for Him.”

You’re going to suffer anyway—whether you are saved or lost. That’s life in a fallen world.

When you submit to Jesus Christ and obey the Word of God, He is going to arch a rainbow of hope over your suffering. He is going to write Romans 8:28 over what you are going through. You will know that your current trial is for your good.

ACTION POINT:

Surrender and submission to God are the only way to get His grace and power over your life. Joy, peace, and worry-free days are ahead for the one who lays his life down for the glory of God. Suffering will come, but joy will follow.
