Christ-followers may suffer in this life but not in eternity!
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
2 Thessalonians 1:5 - God will use this persecution to show his justice and to make you worthy of his Kingdom, for which you are suffering.
Read - 2 Thessalonians 1
This young church was facing the fiery darts of Satan through persecution. Paul reminds them that the ultimate judge (God) is on the case and that rest is coming in the return of Christ. What a peaceful thought in tough times.
Lord, even in times of struggle I will find my peace in You alone.
God empowers us to do what to accomplish EVERYTHING that our FAITH in Him prompts us to do…not that our FLESH prompts us to do. We know the difference by the ongoing Morphing of the Holy Spirit that gives us the Mind of Christ.
