“So those who suffer according to God’s will should, while doing what is good, entrust themselves to a faithful Creator.” I Peter 4:19
He created us…and He cares about us. He is faithful. I have experienced His faithfulness over and over again throughout my life. He can be trusted! I must entrust each of these things to His care!
…And then even more encouragement this morning:
“…casting all your care on Him, because He cares about you.” I Peter 5:7
He can be trusted with these things and people who are precious to me because He cares about me and those that I care about!
“Now the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ Jesus will personally restore, establish, strengthen, and support you after you have suffered a little. The dominion belongs to Him forever. Amen.” I Peter 5:10-11
God Most High…our faithful Creator… will reach down and personally restore, establish, strengthen, and support me when I suffer. He will not send someone else. He will personally attend to my needs. What a humbling thought!
The trials are temporary. He is trustworthy. He holds the future in His hands.
“All to Jesus, I surrender, all to Him I freely give; I will ever love and trust Him, in His presence daily live. I surrender all! I surrender all! All to Thee my blessed Savior, I surrender all!”
