Presently, the testing of faith is underway. Do you have the same loyalty to Christ in the face of adversity and what seems like emptiness but purification?
Seek the word as to why we suffer and the causes and outcomes that facilitate holiness; without it, the enemy has people thinking God is condemning.
Romans 5:3-5: Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
As Christians, we learn through Christ’s example that suffering is a crosswalk to redemption. We know that through the crucifixion of Jesus Christ that suffering often comes with divine purpose, and although we sometimes can’t see the blessing in the storm, the outcome is holiness in Christ.
It’s true many suffer outside the faith and never escape the enemy’s torture because they refuse to believe in the power of salvation through faith in Christ.
Still, for those who believe in Jesus Christ, your floorboard is found in the Holy Gospel, and the foundation needed to stand on the word of God is found in Christ.
1 Peter says, even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed.
Peter declares in 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.”
Please make no mistake that momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. —2 Corinthians 4:17.
When in doubt, drought, and pain, seek the word with all your heart. Indeed the place of peace is found in the heart of God.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.”
God’s love has not changed, and we are currently standing on the holiest days of atonement.
Repentance is vital to break free from strongholds and the enemy’s lies and delusions.
I encourage you to pick up your cross and walk joyfully in the calling of Christ and endure the pain, shame, and rejection—prepared in the fire to be accepted into God’s house.
The walk of Christ is a crosswalk and not a cake toss. It’s not an insult to be chosen to suffer for Christ but the highest honor on earth.
