Matthew 10:22 "And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved."
Have you ever heard someone say they thought once they were saved that ll your problems would be gone? I've heard people say that's what they thought. This is definitely not true. I can say that I handle my problems much better now than before I was save. Now I have God' grace to get me through...and I have Him to turn to.
The Bible tells us that there will still be problems. John 15:18 "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you." II Timothy 3:12 "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." Because the devil hates us....things will not be easy. He will always have something or someone that will make things hard for us. God allows these things to keep us on our knees and to help perfect us and conform us to His image.
Although we have troubles that come our way...and trials get fierce and difficult to get through...God tells us that He has overcome the world. John 16:33 "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." Through Him we have the strength to get through whatever comes our way. Amen!!
