In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials,
I Peter 1:6
At the time Peter wrote this scripture, the believers were in great afflictions because of persecution.
Nevertheless, they were rejoicing greatly because they knew that the one who destroys the body has no power to destroy the soul.
The persecution was terrible but it was only for a while. Their troubles were only temporary, compared with their incorruptible inheritance.
Therefore, in the midst of challenges, we must keep our attention on the incorruptible inheritance kept for us by God’s power and not on the temporal challenges we are going through.
Every storm has an expiry date, but God’s inheritance lasts forever. Shalom.
Prayer :Pray that God’s grace will abound towards you in your season of trials and challenges.
