Don’t be surprised of the things that are going on in your life… The bible told us to instead rejoice for sharing sufferings with Christ! Just as Jesus suffered while walking the narrow path, so will we. Remember Jesus said no servant is greater than their master. Remember we are in Christ, and he is in us… Just as he suffered while living righteously, so will we. Remember in acts 5:41 the apostles rejoiced for suffering for the gospel sake? They were happy to be counted worthy to even suffer for Jesus. The bible tells us anyone that seeks God will indeed suffer persecution, but know that there are many forms of persecution: car issues, health issues, mocking, and etc., they come in different forms, yet the word tells us the more we are afflicted the more we will grow. Through these trials we will be able to display more self control, faith, love, joy, and Etc., through these things we will learn… Through these things we will be able to help others… Not to mention God said he will make it work out for your good!!!! The bible says these present sufferings are TEMPORARY, and they aren’t even worthy to be compared to the things that God is going to reveal within us!!! Rejoice in the promises of God! Rejoice in the fact that God said you won’t be in that situation for ever! God is not a man that he should lie!!!! Live in expectation mode, expecting God to do what he said he would do!!! Praise god in advance for what the word says he is going to do… Let your sufferings turn into joy as you lean & rejoice in the promises of God!!! The JOY OF THE LORD IS YOUR STRENGTH… Meaning when you rejoice in the promises of God… It strengthens you to go on and endure!!! The king is coming!!! Repent!
