Suffering for Righteousness’ Sake? You Are Not Alone

1 Peter 5:9 NLT, ” Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters all over the world are going through the same kind of suffering you are.”

Whatever you are going through, you can take comfort in knowing that you are not the only one. Your brothers and sisters in the faith around the world are going through very similar circumstances to yours. Your brothers and sisters are somewhere across the land fighting for their marriage, their health, their children, their job, their ministry, their reputation, or their peace of mind. You are not alone and you are not the only one.

Elijah felt so alone and abandoned because he could only see himself as the one running away from Jezebel. He felt as if she had killed all of other prophets and only he remained alive. The Lord assured him that He has hundreds of prophets who have not bowed their knees to Baal.

Let me encourage you, for as many as have given up and thrown in the towel, there are multitudes more who have not. Somebody somewhere is fighting with every stitch of faith they have and are determined to see the work of God to the end. You may get weary and you may lose nights of sleep tussling and wrestling in the spirit but remember this, God gives His toughest battles to His strongest soldiers. Ask David. It’s going to be alright. Keep your hammer in one hand and your SWORD in your other hand! Keep building solder, Kingdom advancing on God’s mind. (and this was to me first!)
