“And 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.
To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.”
~ 1 Peter 5:10-11
These verses in 1 Peter were a promised hope to my husband when he first became a Christian over 10 years ago. I was looking just now through one of his old journals and he referenced these verses in how he prayed for the Lord would be faithful through the early stages of his santification . Oh how he was fighting hard against sin with the strength of the Lord provided! And now it encourages my heart to see the Lord answered these prayers to my sweet husband, as he is in Glory with His Savior right now!
Fully restored. Fully confirmed. Fully strengthen. Fully established. By The God of all grace!
Indeed, this encourages my hope in Jesus. I pray these verses over my family and myself as we wait upon the Lord to provide through these darker days as we grieve & miss our dear Mark. God truly is the God of all grace! His grace is that amazing! May the Lord answer these prayers soon for me/us!
To God be the glory!
