1 Peter 4:12-13 (KJV) – Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
Though the foe rages fiercely towards mankind, God’s saving strategy is to magnify His grace before men and angels. His grace is the enabling ability to live like gods over the earth. It means living with a sound mind, a brave mind and a spirit that is totally in tune with heaven’s agenda. Satan’s major strategy is to attack the believer’s focus and thus attack when the believer is most vulnerable. He can disguise Himself as a Christian and try to play on our minds, but this counterfeit Christianity is always exposed by the light in God’s Word.
Father please help me to endure hardship until my change comes in Jesus name.
