It’s Necessary

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. ~ 1 Peter 5:10

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.

It’s necessary. You won’t like it, but you need to put in the time… the time of pain, suffering, hardships and the like. I have called you and you are special and dear to Me. During these times you grow into the individual I need you to be… refined by the fires of this life and able to withstand and endure the evil one and the schemes he has laid out before you. It may seem like a long time, but time is irrelevant to Me… it’s as long as it’s deemed necessary in order for you to be made strong, firm and steadfast. You are not the only one to go through this process, there’s been plenty of others, so you stand in good company.

Look at Joseph who was sold into slavery and thrown into jail… he learned many lessons during his trials and he ended up the second in command of all Egypt and in turn saved the entire nation of Israel. So don’t lose heart, I am with you and will restore you, blessing you more than you could have ever dreamed.
