In times of suffering, it can feel like the pain will never end. While we may not wish for adversity to continue, Alistair Begg shows us that we can endure it, however long it lasts. By keeping the promises of 1 Peter 5:10 in mind, we can be assured that Christ Himself will restore and strengthen us. God uses difficulties to accomplish His ends, including His ultimate purpose of conforming those He has called to the image of His Son.
10And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. 11To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
