“Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer” – We have nothing to worry about when suffering comes. When we let fear, panic, and negativism rule, our suffering is always made worse. Suffering happens to everyone. Just stay calm.
“Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested” – God allows suffering in our lives as a test of our faith. Through everything, stay faithful. “and you will have tribulation ten days” – God is in control of the situation. He regulates the time period of our suffering. He will not allow more to happen or a longer length of time to occur than what we can handle with His help.
“Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life” – God blesses us when we endure the suffering. So hang in there. There is not only a light at the end of the tunnel, there are blessings there, as well.
