Christian Suffering

Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace as you trust in him,
so that you may overflow with hope
by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Christians who have undergone hardship, difficulty and affliction for the sake of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ are often overflowing with peace, courage and hope.

They believe that all good things will come out of them all, though they cannot fully understand them now.

Instead of taking vengeance, they leave their cases with God. They believe God will give them proper justice in His time.

May our lives be so filled with God’s joy and peace
that it may overflow to others too.

Let us pray for ongoing strength and courage
for brethren who have to suffer for their faith.
