So if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God, keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you.
I Peter 4:19 (NLT)
Suffering is never easy. It is bad enough when it is the result of our own doing. But it is even more difficult to handle when we are suffering and haven’t done anything wrong. What do we do? It seems so unfair. Our first inclination is to get angry or perhaps give up. Maybe it is to compromise what we believe, so the pressure goes away. Peter knew what suffering for righteousness sake was. He and the early Christians suffered much persecution. So Peter wrote to the Christians and what he wrote applies to us today. He said to “keep on doing what is right.” Don’t compromise. Don’t give up. Don’t get revenge. Instead, Peter admonishes us to “trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you.” Today, trust God, commit your way to Him, and do right. God will not fail you.
Dear Father, You know my situation. Help me to trust You, Lord. Help me to continue to do right. In Jesus’ name.
