VERNA’S DAILY DEVOTIONAL

I PETER 4:19
Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.
HAVING TAUGHT HIS PEOPLE THE VALUE OF SERVING GOD TO BRING HIM GLORY, PETER EXTRAPOLATES ON HOW GOD USES TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS TO PERFECT, REFINE US.
THE ULTIMATE REWARD IN OUR WILLINGNESS TO SUFFER FOR HIS GLORY, IN ACCORDANCE WITH HIS WILL, IS THAT WE WILL SHARE IN HIS GLORY. THERE ARE SPECIAL REWARDS (VARIOUS PASSAGES REFER TO THIS) FOR THOSE WHO “TAKE UP THEIR CROSS AND FOLLOW HIM” AND WHEN WE COMMIT OUR SOULS AND LIVES TO HIM/HIS SERVICE, HE WILL BE FAITHFUL TO HIS PROMISES.
LET US REALIZE THAT OUR TIME ON EARTH IS INTENDED TO BE A JOURNEY OF TRANSFORMATION, DURING WHICH TIME, WHEN WE ARE SURRENDERED TO HIM, WE BECOME MORE AND MORE LIKE JESUS/YESHUA. AS WELL, IT IS A TIME OF SERVING HIM IN WHATEVER WAY HE ASSIGNS FOR US TO BE PART OF REDEEMING A FALLEN HUMANITY TO BRING SOULS TO HIM WHO WILL JOIN US IN OUR ETERNAL HOME. OUR TIME HERE IS BUT A WISP IN THE WIND. OUR REAL HOME IS WITH HIM, FOREVER, FOR ALL ETERNITY.
