There are so many wonderful things that the Lord has granted us. We read how He grants us wisdom, knowledge, strength, healing, and eternal life. That is only a few of the things! Paul says in the above verse we have been granted two awesome things. The first being our belief in Him. The second, and probably least enjoyed, to suffer for His sake. The sufferings we undertake for our faith are not throwing God for a loop or catching Him off guard in anyway, but they have been granted to us, meaning they are something we can actually take pleasure in. Maybe that’s not what you expected to read today. Take joy in the sufferings that are faced for the name of Jesus, just like the followers in Acts 5:41. Rejoice knowing that you are His forever!
Resting in Him,
Pastor Sean Boehm
