Keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won't last forever.
amen amen amen thank you lord! thank you God for your word (vv. 8-11): "Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. KEEP YOUR GUARD UP. You're not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It's the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won't last forever. It won't be long before this GENEROUS God who has GREAT plans for us in Christ - eternal and glorious plans they are! - will have you PUT TOGETHER and ON YOUR FEET FOR GOOD. He gets the last word; yes, he does." amen! all the STRENGTH, all the SECURITY and all the PEACE we'll ever need, thank you lord!!
