Romans 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
Psalm 41:1 Blessed is he who considers the poor; The LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.
Lamentations 3:51 My eyes bring suffering to my soul because of all the daughters of my city.
Matthew 17:20 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
We are all going through some sorrow of some sort saints, and it is not something strange that is happening to us. If you belong to God, you WILL suffer persecution now or later. Satan will not leave you alone, because you do not belong to him. If this were the case you would not be suffering, as God does not give His children suffering, but gives them power to show the devil that he will not get away with it.
God will provide whatever power you need to overcome any trials the devil sends at you, for He promised He will NOT let us go through what we are unable to bear, but will give us a way out. Saints, rejoice to know that through it all, you belong to God, that is why we suffer now, but the big deal will happen later when our Father sends our Brother Jesus to collect us and attend that big wedding. Our minds cannot comprehend it, and for this reason, keep pressing forward. God be praised.
Galatians 5:11 I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why do I still suffer persecution? Then the offense of the cross has ceased.
Galatians 6:12 As many as desire to make a good showing in the flesh, these would compel you to be circumcised, only that they may not suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.
2 Timothy 3:12 Yes, and ALL who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. You think we have problems, think again.
