“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”
1 Peter 5:10
Strong, firm, steadfast – not descriptions I would normally use for myself in the midst of trouble. But that is how I react in my own power. God offers me a better option. To rely on Him means not only to be delivered through a storm, but to experience more of His presence, and to grow in faith. That is where true strength comes from!
