Whom should I trust?

Last night’s Bible study was amazing. 1 Peter 2:13-25 is a life changing passage. So what did I learn? I learned something I already knew but that I haven’t been able to fully understand which has hindered me from fully trusting in Him.

1 Peter 2:19 – For this is a gracious thing, when, mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly.

You know, it’s almost hard to wrap my head around the fact that God is telling me I am going to suffer, I have to suffer. My struggles in life are what turned me away from God to begin with, so to know that my suffering will bring me closer to God is almost breathtaking.

Next, I started thinking, if I had never suffered and been broken I would’ve never turned to God. God used my suffering to bring me closer to Him. What a wonderfully faithful God we serve!!

In my suffering, I have been blessed. Now I can thank God for the things that have gone wrong in my life.

Rejoice in Suffering
I’ve often wondered
God, What have I done?
Rejecting you for so long
Then I remember Your Son
He showed an example
Of how I should live
The things I should sacrifice
And what I must give
He showed me how to suffer
In God’s glorious name
And to praise the One
Who casts out my shame
So in my suffering
I will rejoice
For the safety I’ve found
In the sound of Your voice
